(2019) Beautiful apricot and taut apple and pear, creamy, just a hint of nuttiness. Salts and minerals of acidity cutting through the fruit. The finish is lovely, the acid just hits the spot perfectly, with taut white fruit flavours and real energy.
(2019) This is 100% barrel fermented, around 50% new. Lovely golden glow and aromatics, juicy yellow apples, smoothed with cream and gentle custard, a bit of spice too. The palate is full and lush, but there’s an immediate rush of fat, ripe but focused lemon, then more pithy lemon and grapefruit fills the mouth, the acidity becomes absolutely focused through the fine creamy, lightly spicy finish.
(2019) Funky pea-pod character; not a bright pea-shoot character, but something a little more deep and vegetal from Sauvignon and Semillon. A touch of earthiness and tobacco again. The palate has a really dry, pithy lemon dryness and agility. No stockists of this listed at time of review.
(2019) Stellenbosch fruit for this release - Verdelho, Roussanne, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. Lots of fruit sweetness and ripeness, seemingly a little more traditional, but has that element of funk.
(2019) Stellenbosch fruit from a vineyard planted in 1982, and this has a lovely sense of warmth, a little toffee note, the ripeness here steps up a gear, with nectarine lusciosness as well as that lemon rind grip and plenty of zest. A multi-layered wine of great texture and flavour.
