'Alternates between powerful & elegant, intense cherry/berry notes supported by seamless tannins & hints of spice. Equal Cab franc, Malbec & sauvignon, dashes petit Verdot & merlot, made to last.’  Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2013, 5*            

'One of South Africa’s finest wines and should repay considerable cellaring. Go seek and marvel.’  Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 96/100
