    “Compact & youthful 2017 is pure cab, showing classic cassis & lead pencil aromas & firm, supple tannins. 36% new-oak maturation for 18 months well integrated. Wholeberry ferment, as The Jem.”

  2. Tim Atkin | 95pts

    “Often among my favourite Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignons, this textbook Helderberg red was blended with 3% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc in 2017. Scented, refined and effortlessly dense and complex, with aromatic 30% new wood, mocha, cedarwood and cassis flavours and a long, balanced, herbal finish.”
