(2019) From a single vineyard on limestone, this spends 100 days on the Lees. A golden, glowing apricotty nose, and terrific creaminess though it is unoaked, the palate so bold and fruit-driven, with lots of mineral salts.
(2019) Twelve months in oak, all French, neutral and medium toast. Exotic spice, nutty, seeds and oatmeal over golden plum and citrus. There's great fruit focus here, oranges and limes and that creamy toast background and persistent sweetness. Long and distinguished.
(2019) From limestone soils, plenty of flint and mineral touches to open stone fruit aromas, a bit of wild yeast funk. The palate has great acid structure, a beautiful core of yellow plum and lemon zest fruit.
(2019) With 250g/l of residual sugar this is essentially unfermented grape juice fortified to 16% alcohol, and it is powerful stuff. Magical nose, punches with floral, almost geranium fragrance, toffee but loads of ripe sweet nectarine, thick and honeydew flavours with very good sweetness and acid balance. Price for 50cl.
(2019) Matured in second-fill French oak for 9 months. A little herbaceous pea-pod and green bean, the palate bursting with crisp but sweet and bright fruit and the creaminess of the oak adding a touch of figgy richness. Not available in retail in the UK.
(2019) Wild yeast, but a very bright nose, clean, citrus and bright stone fruit, old oak not masking the freshness and focus of the fruit. One vineyard picked early to retain the lemony freshness and a little of the wilder, drier, almost Chablis-like modern style. This label of the de Wet family appears not to have UK retail availability at time of review.
(2019) Matured in 20% new barrels, only made in best vintages. Slightly funky, peppery quality, a green character, bit of silkiness though, rounded, pure fruit, supple and long, very much drives the finish. No retail availability in the UK at time of review.
(2019) Sweet creamy oak, lots of bold, creamy sweet fruit, the palate very harmonious, there is a nod towards sweet peach, but an orchard fruit cool focus, well handled subtle oatmeal, and very good acid structure. Not available in retail in the UK.
(2019) Again, no UK retail availability for this at time of review. 24 months in all new French oak, 300-litre barrels. Delightful nose, no sign of greenness, bold black fruit and red liquorice, the palate has a touch of bloodiness and a very long finish.
