From a 2.4ha Swartland vineyard on schist providing a miniscule yield on account of the drought – total production 1 250 bottles. 100% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 11 months in old oak. An entirely compelling nose of red and black berries plus olive with notes of rose, lavender, fynbos and white pepper in the background. The palate displays extraordinary fruit density but also has a fabulous energy about – pure and fresh with ultra-fine tannins, this is absolutely thrilling to drink and to my mind even surpasses the wonderful 2017.

Editor’s rating: 98/100.
