90 pts Wine Spectator Web Only - 2018
Bright and focused, with verbena, honeysuckle, green and yellow apple and pear aromas and flavors streaming through. Fresh, showing good definition through the finish. Drink now through 2019.
4 ½ Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
16 still youthfully, toastily flaunting its 45% new oak mid 2017 – but should resolve in bottle. Ripe but light-feeling character (just under 13% alcohol), with creamy texture & good lemony acidity.



Winemaker Notes

Very bright, polished platinum with green, vivacious hue. Complex, appealing nose with pear, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness. On the palate the wine is medium bodied and linear but retains generous focused citrus fruit flavours with sleek, balanced and crisp acidity. The wine remains vivacious and fresh on the finish with clean citrus fruit and stony minerality. The wine has a long, very pleasant lingering finish.
