Glenda rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Chenin Blanc is also known as Steen in South Africa where more of this variety is produced than even The Loire Valley in France. It is used for everything from generic, dry, white wines to age-worthy, premium wines to ambitious, sweet wines to brandy.
Graham Beck's Bowed Head Chenin Blance is one of the best expressions of this cultivar.
This is a complex, delicious, barrel fermented wine. It has the aging potential of about 10 years. The average age of the vines from which the fruit was harvested is 40 years.
