    2009 Decanter World Wine Awards - Bronze medal
    The pinnacle of what we consider to be the finest expression of the grapes of this varietal – an icon chenin, a challenge to the world! Rich, layered with dried apricot, vanilla and honey.

    "With masses of over the top fruit and a veritable tidal wave of waxy honey and lemon curd this is a flamboyant wine for flamboyant wine lovers everywhere." - Matthew Jukes' Top 50 from Cape Wine 2008
    Ageing Potential
    Will gain additional complexity with cellaring.
