Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 88 Points (2018)
From the estate formerly known as Buitenverwachting, this is fresh and tangy with notes of lime and red grapefruit. A little spice and some vegetal notes give it complexity, and point it toward a Sichuan green-bean stir-fry.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2017)
Clean and lively, this dazzles with fresh aromas of green melon, plum and lemon curd that are accented by herbal notes of fresh-cut grass and sweet pea. The palate is prickly and nervy, with oodles of bright, mouthwatering citrus flavors and a touch of underripe peach. Best Buy

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2016)
This is refined, with a steely spine that lets gooseberry, verbena and white peach flavors streak through. A hint of shortbread adds range and mouthfeel along the edges. The long finish has lovely cut. Drink now through 2019.

Robert Parker (RP) : 87 Points (2015)
The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of the top blocks from the estate from southeast facing slopes, vines aged between four- and 20-years-old. It has a touch of tropical fruit on the nose - simple but clean. The palate is clean and fresh with nicely judged acidity, brisk abdn breezy with green apple and a touch of gooseberry towards the finish. Drink this over the next 2-3 years.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 89 Points (2014)
Pale, bright straw. Reticent aromas of peach, grapefruit and lime, along with a hint of soft citrus fruits. Nicely broad and minerally but reserved today, still holding a bit of CO2. Shows a resiny hint from lees contact, not from wood (the wine was done entirely in stainless steel tanks). Good firm, lingering finish. Still needs a year to harmonize and open, but has the palate presence and minerality to pair well with food already.

Crystallum Mabalel Elandskloof Pinot Noir 2019
Crystallum Mabalel Elandskloof Pinot Noir 2019
Lighter and more feminine than the other Crystallum Pinot Noirs. Dried flower petals, violets and bright cherry notes lead to an elegant and refined palate with very fine tannins and a fresh finish.

Kalfu Sumpai Sauvignon Blanc 2018
This wine is transparent and pale green in colour. Notable for its minerality with soft notes of green chilli pepper and herbs. A fresh, full-bodied wine with structure and crisp acidity. A clean and persistent finish with intense salinity.
