Here is what the judges had to say about our award-winning wines:

Cabernet Sauvignon: Opulent yet well-structured, herbal richness to the cassis & graphite tones, balanced with bright acid & powdery tannin grip. Lengthy finish.

Pinotage: One of the best to date, sumptuously flavoured with refinement & balance in the form of violet perfume, & savouriness from coriander spice & fynbos. Lovely pure fruit in a layered structure of dusty tannins, a hint of cream on unflagging farewell.

Shiraz: Uninhibited, loaded with hedgerow fruit, spicy vanilla & earth borne on a liqueur-like texture, melded tannins holding it all together. Quite something.

Cape Blend: Loses Roobernet in 2020 for a pinotage (65%), cab & merlot mix that improves on the 2019 in-depth & breadth. Lashings of dark fruit, dried herbs & meat spice are held in check by the firm yet supple grip that will last a good few years. Again, attractive pristine fruit, undimmed by the oak, all new, 18 months, like all these reds.

Chenin Blanc: Tropical fruit & crème brûlée richness turning savoury on the palate of 2021. Creamy vanilla overlay from a year in 70% new oak, which also aids texture & extends the good dry finish.
