Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2019)
Once ubiquitous blending components for brandy production in years gone past have come into their own, now with old-vine complexity. Chenin Blanc is the major component (74%) along with Clairette (8%), Viognier (7%) and Grenache Blanc (6%) plus tiny additions of Semillon Gris, Viura and Verdelho, sourced from seven parcels in different parts of Swartland. Candied lemon peel, cloves, poached pear and quince together with white blossom and fresh pastry weave together for an enticing nose. These follow on the palate with bright citrus, ripe pear and peach with stony minerality and almond-like finish. Will get more waxy and textural as it ages. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2018)
This sports a flattering mouthfeel, with ginger, orange curd and dried apricot notes. Picks up baking spice elements midpalate, adding to the complexity, while the finish shows savory mineral and bitter herb accents. Balanced and focused. Chenin Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Sémillon. Drink now through 2028.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 94 Points (2017)
Mixing soil types and varieties (Chenin with Clairette, Sauvignon Gris, Grenache Blanc and Viognier), this old vine cuvée is wonderfully complex and exotic in 2017. Honeysuckle, aromatic spices, sappy acidity and pear and passion fruit heaven. 2019-24. Alcohol: 13.5

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 92 Points (2017)
Chris and Andrea Mullineux search out old chenin blanc parcels for the backbone of this wine, adding small amounts of grenache blanc, clairette, viognier and semillon. The fruit from each parcel is whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented with ambient yeasts, then left on the lees until it’s gone through malolactic. This 2017 is still so young you can feel some of that lactic acid in the wine’s creamy richness, a milky, toasty note that brings to mind Comté cheese. Give it air and it turns toward fresh cream, complete with notes of wildflowers and grasses, and the fruit comes up—pale peach and tangy tangerine. If you open this now, decant it before pouring with something rich—like raclette. Better, however, to give it a few years in the cellar to lengthen out.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2015)
The 2015 Old Vines White is predominantly Chenin Blanc complemented by the usual other varieties and Grenache Blanc for the first time this vintage, planted around five or six years ago. It has a well-defined bouquet with scents of grilled walnut and candle wax, a touch of oyster shell just in the background. The palate is rounded on the entry with crisp acidity, smooth and harmonious with hints of walnut, white pepper and a dash of lemongrass towards the finish. It needs just a little more tension on the second half, but there is commendable weight and concentration to suggest that it will age with style.
