"I picked up unique and extraordinary tones here, with liquorice, bouquet garni, prune and blueberry flavours swirling around a cool, breezy, fresh core which lifts the whole and makes it fly. While this is a profoundly rich wine it is also uncommonly light on its feet making it perfect for drinking now. What it manages to do like no other Cape creation I can think of is to summon up such amazing complexity while remaining so nimble and refreshing on the palate. A little like a Griffin, this wine has the heart of a lion and the wings of an eagle and I hope it finds its way, eventually, into your wine collection". Matthew Jukes
