"There’s a lovely dry, dusty, stony edge to the taut pear and ripe apple fruit. There’s an orange peel character, too. So structured and fine with great definition. Feels lovely in the mouth with nice grip. Though-provoking and detailed. 95/100" (Jamie Goode) Alheit Radio Lazarus 2015 Stellenbosch chenin blanc, one third in old barrel and the rest in amphora. Radio Lazarus is taken from two sloping sites in Bottlerary, facing each other, and named as such because radios disseminate an idea (plus the top of the two hills have radio towers on top). Pure and linear, with spices, pear, herbal lined pear skin drawn along a vibrating backbone of acidity. Dusty herbal spice and saline closes out the lingering finish. 93/100 (TR)


Press Note:

Neal Martin: "There has been a change with the 2015 Radio Lazarus. In 2013, Chris started working with a hilltop vineyard in Bottelary that formed the source for his Cartology, but now this has been "re-routed" into this label, so that Radio Lazarus comes from two parcels instead of one. The bouquet has a very succinct bouquet with almond, hazelnut, dried honey and Mirabelle. The palate is very well balanced with fine acidity, more a textural delight than overt flavors with sublime orange pith, walnut and saline notes on the ethereal finish. This is a strong follow-up to the stellar 2014 and it may even surpass it. A must-buy. 94 points"
