5 Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Venerable Bottelary Hills bushvines, now 53, yield glorious 17 (95pts). Still tightly wound but elegant intensity of ripe fruit, complexing honeyed botrytis evident behind steely acidity, especially on endless fantail finish. Deserves time required to reach full potential.
94 pts Tim Atkin MW 2018
Fifty-three refers to the age of this celebrated dry land vineyard. Picked in three stages, with around 3% botrytis in the mix, this is leesy, spicy and rich, with stylish oak and lots of tropical fruit sweetness. 2019-25
