"Five pickings from single-vineyard, natural ferment in oak, aged in mix of barrel, amphora, stainless steel. 2017 has thrilling tension, purity & complexity in spice-edged, ripe lime flavours. Texture is as important; density, fine grip, ensure a long lifespan." Platter’s Guide 2020, 5* (97/100)


Tasting Notes

"Craig Wessels picks this two-hectare block in five stages to achieve maximum balance and complexity. Large barrel and amphora-fermented, it’s a stunning, elegantly refined Chardonnay with understated oak, some cinnamon spice, good texture and a fresh, citrus peel finish. One of the Cape’s best Chardonnays. 2019-25." Tim Atkin SA Report 2019, 96/100
