Description

CELLAR INFORMATION The 2021 harvest was picked roughly two weeks earlier than the 2020-vintage (which was picked a week later than “normal”) due to sudden a heat wave. Typical days in that area are hot to very hot, with evenings cooling down dramatically. As there is no mountains or hills in that area, a salty air blows in from the ocean – roughly 35km away – during the evening. This creates a fogginess that lingers during the night and when the sun rises the next morning, a Kelpy seaspray gets left behind and eventually gets dried by the hot sun on the vines.

Reviews

Greg Sherwood 95

A pronounced wet grey slate and petrichor note over hints of peach stone, lime blossom, rock salt and crunchy green pear. The palate is every bit as pleasing with a rich, glycerol mouthfeel packed full of salty white peaches, green apple, sour pear drops and a wet river pebble minerality. The lees ageing in tank has added a fabulous extra textural dimension and depth that plays synergistically to this grape variety s true characteristics. Simply delicious. Drink this on release and over the next 10 to 12+ years. Wine Safari Score: 95/100 Greg Sherwood MW [Greg Sherwood, 01/01/2023]

Producer Profile

Ian Naudé’s wines are unlike anything else.

His range of wines are made up of esoteric pockets of old and new vines that tell a story about South African heritage. He did so fearlessly, believing that South African wine, if made honestly, and without compromise can come to rival the finest wines in the world. And slowly the international wine cognoscenti have started believing it too, as demonstrated by their rave reviews year-on-year.
