(2021) Around 85% of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir here comes from vineyards close to False Bay in Stellenbosch, with the remainder from Robertson. This wine saw full malolactic and 12 to 15 months on the lees, and the dosage is 8.4g/l. It immediately his freshness, a dry citrus and Asian pear clarity, subtle biscuity richness too. The palate is zippy and fresh, a raciness to the mousse and acidity, but there is a fruit sweetness on the mid-palate keeping this crowd-pleasing and very easy to drink.
(2016) Fine zesty and elderflower nose, but the ripe topicality of the fruit comes through beautifully. On the palate that green bean punch of flavour and oiliness, but really lovely acidity to cut the fruit and texture, broadening to a hint of creaminess.
