This was in the Wines of South Africa semi-final blind tasting lineup, and I could not believe it was a 2013. Pure, crystalline and mineral-driven happiness.

On par with the best around. I'm writing this about a month late, but I remember the impression it had on me. South Africa is doing great things. Delicious oak on this one

Not as good as I was expecting but good none the less - nicely balanced with peach, melon and some oak. Expensive.
