92 pts Wine Spectator 2/28/19
Broad and ripe in feel, with creamed pear, melon and yellow apple fruit flavors laced with white ginger and singed hazelnut notes. The long finish features gentle toast, allowing the fruit to play out. Drink now through 2022. 2,140 cases made, 475 cases imported.
4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
As always has equipoise of richness & restraint, forcefulness & elegance. 17 (93 pts) a little toasty oak (20% new) evident, but should soon integrate. Deep, concentrated, complex flavours with lively balancing acidity. Like 16 should acquire even greater character over a decade.
