Reviews and Ratings

Grapes were sourced from a selection of the Cape’s top vineyards in Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington and Robertson, harvested at optimal ripeness to achieve the fruit-driven character of the eventual wine.

Grapes were harvested by hand in February and March at between 23° and 25° Balling and each vineyard block was separately vinified. The grapes were fermented at low temperatures (between 20° and 25°C) to retain fruit flavours. In addition, three days’ maceration helped to preserve flavour while giving intensity of colour to the wine. The skins were then removed, pressed and malo-lactic fermentation completed.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
