“The 2018 wine is a seamless entity with a slightly higher acidity than in 2017 and 2016, but much more layered and the overall polarity in the wine has increased. Tasting this for the annual review and for our records, we were reminded that a great white wine surpasses all “classifications” of wine. This one is seriously packed and dense at 13.5% alcohol with an acidity that beams at you. Hands off for a while!” Eben Sadie, Winemaker.
“Space prevents me from listing all of them, but this remarkable Swartland white is made from 11 different varieties, including Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Verdelho, Palomino, Marsanne and Roussanne, spread across 17 different sites. Peach, pear and lime flavours are beautifully melded on this more-than-the-sum-of-its-parts white, with gentle oak spice and a thread of acidity that runs through the wine like a cool underground stream.” 97 points, Tim Atkin MW, South Africa Special Report 2020.
