Stock Arriving Mid-June.

“Made by Gottfried Mocke of Boekenhoutskloof, but sold under its own label, this stylish Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Chardonnay is made with fruit that used to go into Sumaridge. Marrying barrel- and concrete-fermented and aged portions, it has jasmine and hawthorn aromas, pear and citrus fruit and very subtle wood spices. 2020-25”

93 Points - Tim Atkin South Africa Special Report 2019

“Quite rich yet with that streak of briny acidity typical of this part of the world. Passion- and kiwi-fruit notes. Wait for more bottle development, I suggest… 13.5% Drink 2020 – 2024”

16.5+/20 - Jancis Robinson 2019

“Spontaneously fermented, like sibling, 70% in new oak, rest concrete’eggs’ (vs Pinot‘s 100% concrete vats). All-wholebunch 2018 is elegant, with pristine orchard & stonefruit, hint of apple blossom, creamy vanilla. Dry, with, a grapefruit pith finish. Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge WO.”
