I quite enjoyed this South African chenin blanc. I would have guessed chardonnay. Balanced oak. — a month ago

Burning through my 12’s & 13’s of this wine. It’s probably as good as it will get. — 4 months ago
As a friend accurately noted: color of dehydrated urine sample, but man did it smell & taste great! These are amongst the oldest vines in Mosel and it showed: stunning depth & complexity here ranging from a parade of yellow fruit: mandarin orange, cling peaches, apricot, quince all drenched in clover honey to slat-y minerals, allspice, cinnamon, grandma’s dusty attic and basement cellar & marzipan. No petrol here, just a hedonistic journey. Silky & sexy, round, still w/acidic zip and a long luscious finish. — 2 months ago

Amazing purity & depth and an electric tension define this wine much more than any fruity or floral descriptions.
100y vines on grey slate, vinified bone dry and with a great mineral spicy core. There is some fruit wound around it but it’s wound very tight. Great presence and a finish that just goes in forever.
This is complex and quite profound.
And costs peanuts for this experience! — 4 months ago
