4.5 Stars - Platter's 92 Points - Robert Parker 95 Points - Wine Spectator

Specifications:

15.16% alc vol Sugar g/l: 1.6
Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 3 to 15 yrs
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Stellenbosch

Winemaker's comments:

Deep bright red colour. Intense, but elegant wild and red berry fruit with complex spice and white pepper nuances – all very persistent. Lovely purity of fruit on the palate, despite the range of interesting secondary flavours – incl. spice, pepper and subtle oak. Fine, dry and persistent finish.

Rating:

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer

Specifications:

14.83% alc vol Sugar g/l: 1.7
Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 15 yrs+
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Helderberg

Winemaker's comments:

Bright red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of currant, tobacco and pepper. Supple and rather suave on the palate, with black and red berry flavors complicated by minerals, black cardamom and wild herbs. At once plump and serious thanks to its underlying minerality and firm, dusty tannins.

Cultivar:

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Rating:

4.5 Stars - Platter's 91 Points - Wine Spectator

Specifications:

15.19% alc vol Sugar g/l: 2.2
Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 5 to 15 yrs
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Stellenbosch

Winemaker's comments:

Attractive deep red colour. Intense fruitcake, complex berries and black olives. A distinct nutty character evolves and is complimented by pencil shavings and cedar from the fine French oak. Still tight, restrained and rather linear on the palate. Needs time to unfold and show itself.

Cultivar:

100% Chenin Blanc

Rating:

91 Points - Wine Spectator

Specifications:

14.83% alc vol Sugar g/l: 1.9
Type: White Wine Maturation Potential: 15 yrs+
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Helderberg

Winemaker's comments:

The nose is quite subtle at first, evolving in the glass to show damp hay, rich apricot and honey, noticeable, but well integrated oak and a complex mineral character. The palate is rich and full-bodied, yet quite elegant with a long finish and attractive creamy texture from long lees contact.

Cultivar:

100% Merlot

Rating:

90 Points - Robert Parker 90 Points - Wine Spectator 91 Points - Stephen Tanzer

Specifications:

14.83% alc vol Sugar g/l: 1.8
Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 4 to 12 yrs
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Stellenbosch

Winemaker's comments:

Attractive bright red colour. Rich red berry and cherry fruit with intriguing earthiness, nuts and spices. These flavours follow through on the palate with lovely fine dry tannins and a classic long, finish.

Cultivar:

40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 20% Shiraz/Syrah, 13% Cabernet Franc

Rating:

4.5 Stars - Platter's 92 Points - Robert Parker 92 Points - Wine Spectator

Specifications:

14.58% alc vol Sugar g/l: 1.5
Type: Red Blend, Red Wine Maturation Potential: 6 to 18 yrs
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Stellenbosch

Winemaker's comments:

Attractive medium deep red colour. Forthcoming lifted aromas of fruitcake and tomato paste, cinnamon, cloves and smoky blackberry emerging too. Shiraz component dominated by the Bordeaux varietals at this stage and new oak component nicely integrated. Elegant dry tannin running with the complex spicy fruit from beginning to end of a long fine finish.
