Platter’s Guide 5-star Award

Nov 18, 2022

I’m very excited to share with you that our 2020 vintage received a coveted 5-star rating (95 points) in the Platter’s Guide for 2023.

It is extremely rewarding that our 2nd vintage managed to follow in the footsteps of the 2019.

This 43rd edition of South Africa’s favourite wine guide features well over 8000 locally produced wines, and to be one of only 196 wines to receive the sought-after 5-stars, is a massive honour for myself and Debra.

Platter’s Guide 2023 tasting notes:

Maintains exceptional standard & restrainedly rich styling in 2020 . Complex, layered, with bramble, ripe plum & whiff of smoky oak, all in perfect balance & set for fine development over 10+ years. 2 years in 70% new barrique. Just 670 cases & some magnums this harvest.— Winnie Bowman CWM”
