Wine tasting notes

Deep minerality on the nose with aromas of citrus, peach flowers, dried herbs, ginger and spices. On the palate it has an interesting texture, with weight and depth and extraordinarily pure fruit led by a present acidity and with a touch of almond skin. A wine with a long, elegant and slightly bitter finish.

High site in Piekenierskloof, vines 20 years old. Picked early and goes with full solids to concrete eggs. Chalky, dusty-mineral pear fruit. Dry and chalky in texture, with the fruit flavour of Grenache Blanc and still great freshness. Chalky length and that lovely dry dusty texture that I associate with concrete - Julia Harding MW


Vinous/Stephen Tanzer (2018) - 90 pts

The 2018 Grenache Blanc is whole-bunch-pressed and matured in concrete and clay (no oak). It offers generous lemon curd, brioche and orange blossom scents that are well defined. The palate is fresh on the entry, offering orange pith and clementine notes, and quite tight at present. The slightly curt finish suggests it will need a couple of years to really show its mettle in bottle - Neal Martin.
