Awards, Reviews and other Notes

5 Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Gets ‘Courageous’ prefix in restrainedly oaked (10% new) 16 (*****); layered & serious, over-delivering. Rich, with buttery baked apple, warm spice & crème brulee flavours. Decant in youth.
92 pts Winemag.co.za May 2018
Remarkably, the The Dryland Collection Courageous Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc from Perdeberg in Paarl has placed among the top 10 at the Standard Bank Chenin Blanc Top 10 Challenge for four consecutive years.
The current-release 2016 is old school but entirely delicious. Matured for 10 months in 500-litre barrels, 10% of which were new, the nose shows citrus and peach, bee’s wax and a hint of spice. The palate is rich and greasy with tangy acidity lending balance, the finish suitably savoury. Alcohol is 13.75% and RS is so 3.8g/l so not exactly aperitif style.
