(2019) From three specific plots, barrel-fermented with 3% Semillon. There is a richness and creaminess here, a little gravelly character that reminds me of Pessac. Lime marmalade, a charm about the fresh and ripe fruit, but the acidity and sheer, clean finish, rounded by a touch of barrel, makes for a terrific wine. No retail stockists in the UK at time of review.
(2019) A single block on a very exposed site, blending Sauvignon and 24% Semillon. 600-litre barrels for the SB, clay amphora for the Semillon. Blended into barrel and then steel for ageing. Riandri says the berries are tiny and taste salty when you taste them from the vine. Delicious leesy, rich style, lanolin and cream, but a gravel character again and lime skins and juice. The palate is so intense, with loads of grip and texture, pithy and dry, but juicy and salty into a long finish. A terrific wine and the one that cemented Cape Point's reputation, so what a shame that again I can see no UK retailers at this time.
