Intriguing, dense nose that suggests there is much more to come. Very rich start - almost Grasmere gingerbread (including the cut peel), a hint of saltiness - and then admirable freshness. (Is this the Paardebosch soil? The Clairette and Chenin?) Very complex with real chew and layers. You could enjoy this already but I feel it will develop too. Great stuff!
- Jancis Robinson 17/20
Authoritative white blend from 12 mostly dryland bushvine blocks, some 50+ years. Earth & umami nuances in 2015 recall 2014's evocative perfumes. Mostly chenin & roussanne with viognier, clairette & semillon; smooth & composed. Old oak, native yeasts, no additives, low sulphur; no fining/filtration, as for all.
