Review Round-up (October ’20)
What's been said about our wines...
We truly believe our wines are fantastic, but you already knew that – we wouldn’t sell them if we didn’t!
That said, it is always nice when someone else recognises the quality in our portfolio, even better when they write a lovely review in the press to tell everyone about it…
Here’s a round-up of what they’ve been saying about us this last month!
Prà Morandina Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2018: “Plenty of dried cherries, berries, figs, walnuts and hints of raisins. It’s full-bodied and chewy with polish and brightness at the same time. Drink or hold.” 92 pts. JamesSuckling.com (23rd-30th August ’20)
Sepp Moser Grüner Veltliner von den Terrassen [Organic & Biodynamic] 2019: “Smoked lemon with spicy apple and pear on the nose, as well as some lemon grass . Medium body with creamy texture and a delicious finish. Subtle. Drink now.” 92 pts. JamesSuckling.com (23rd-30th August ’20)
Sepp Moser Grüner Veltliner Breiter Rain [Organic & Biodynamic] 2018: “Spiced apple with pear, honey and some stone. Liquorice and slatey notes. Medium-to full-bodied, creamy and fruity. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now.” 91 pts. JamesSuckling.com (23rd-30th August ’20)
Ruviano Verdicchio Classico (Organic) 2019: ” …is remarkably spicy and savory, with a whiff of wild herbs and lemon zest that completes its gorgeous bouquet. Its silky textures give way to ripe melon with hints of lime, saline-minerals and juicy acids, which keep the experience lively and fresh, tapering off with inner florals and a hint of sour citrus. It’s a thoroughly complete, balanced and satisfying glass of Verdicchio.” 91 pts. Eric Guido, Vinous (September ’20)
Emiliana Salvaje Syrah 2018: “Vivid floral peppery aromatics, totally captivating. Beautiful, scented Syrah, just what you’re after.” 95 pts. Peter Richards MW, Decanter South American Syrah Panel Tasting (September 2018)
The Underworld Blend No.3 2019: Winner of the Old Mutual Trophy for Best Rhône-Style Red Blend at Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show, South Africa’s premier wine competition.
Wildeberg Range: Our Wildeberg wines were tasted by Tim Atkin MW as part of this ‘South Africa Special Report 2020’, all the wines in the range score 90+ points. A real highlight was Wildeberg White 2019 being mentioned as one of the ‘Whites of the Year’ and scoring a very impressive 95 points!
