Platter Guide 4.5 Stars. The nose is dark and brooding and entices with its black fruit aromas and hints of pepper and spice. The blueberry and blackberry of the nose follow through onto a layered, full palate with flavours of dark plums and notes of dust, graphite and cocoa nib. The wine is focused and elegant, with fresh yet integrated acidity and fine-grained tannins, adding to exceptional structure. Black currant and milk chocolate linger on a silky finish.

Tim Atkin MW 95 points. An impressive follow up to the brilliant 2017, this pure Simonsberg Cabernet Sauvignon is enjoying a rich run of form. Inky, concentrated and profound, with cedar-wood and graphite aromas, impressive structure, fine-grained tannins and fleshy plum and dark berry fruit. 2023-30. Rustenberg’s single vineyard Peter Barlow Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship red of their impressive range. A powerful, long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon that is given the best possible treatment in the cellar – certainly one of South Africa’s most impressive reds.

This is the fourth vintage of this wine after re-planting. Our idea has always been to make what is basically a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from this unique vineyard. It is not a true single-vineyard in that we have blended in barrel selections of the best of our other vineyards. The Cabernet has a very intense cassis aroma with unique citrus-rind notes. It has a firmer tannin structure than many of our wines, but still with the elegance for which Jonkershoek Valley wines are known. This wine is based around the highest elevation vineyard on the estate, which at 550m is arguably one of Stellenbosch’s highest Cabernet vineyards. The...

Platter 4.5 stars. WINEMAKER’S NOTES WINEMAKER: CRAIG MCNAUGHT The name pays homage to the Roman poet, Ovid, who is quoted on the front label of this wine: “Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it there will be a fish.” Despite a really tough vintage in 2018, this wine shines through. Always an early ripener, our Tempranillo was harvested in the first week in February, just before the searing heat we experienced later on that Summer. As has become protocol with this wine, we meticulously hand-picked, hand-sorted and destemmed each bunch before a 6 day pre-ferment cold soak. The...

(94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot) Oz Clarke: 95 points "..the style is gloriously easy-going yet quite serious enough to be inspiring. The wine flows across your palate, full of red plum and cherry fruit and savoury seasoning of herbs, black olives and salted liquorice. It's led by acid rather than tannin and even hints at a little spice and violet scent." ref: Cambridge Wine Merchants #CAB
