'Now incorporating four vineyards, the core still from the Paardeberg. 60% whole-bunch fermentation while maturation lasted 12 months, half in concrete and half in older 500-litre barrels. Charming aromatics of red cherry, plums, musk, fynbos, white pepper and a little undergrowth. The palate is not quite as light and fleeting as previous vintages and that much the better for it – good depth of fruit, snappy acidity and fine tannins, the finish gently savoury.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100

'The 2020 vintage consists of four Grenache Noir vineyards, with the core a vineyard from the Paardeberg planted in the early 2000’s. Joining this vineyard is another Paardeberg vineyard, recently planted on the north-eastern side of the Langkloof valley, overlooking the Aprilskloof. Another addition is a 2016 planted vineyard in schist of the Kasteelberg. This vineyard was planted on terraces high up in the mountain. Finally, Grenache noir from a farm north of Malmesbury was also added, a vineyard we have been working with since 2012. A component of the wine was fermented and matured in concrete. Juice was kept on the skins for four weeks pre-/during fermentation and 60% whole bunches were used. One punch down per day was done resulting in minimal and gentle extraction. The wine was pressed off and matured in old 500 L neutral French oak barrels as well as a 2 700 L concrete vessel for a year.' – David & Nadia Sadie, Winemakers
