Tim Atkin South Africa Special Report 2020:

“It’s not easy making Bordeaux blends of this quality in Franschhoek, but Gottfried Mocke’s cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon with 11% Cabernet Franc is a fresh, elegant, nuanced delight. Granular, refined and easily handling its 80% new wood, this is herbal rather than green with lovely lift and freshness. 2022-28” - 95 points

Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2021:

“Classic, complex 2018 surrounds elegant tannic backbone with stylishly draped blackcurrant, blackberry & warm tar. 80% new French oak adds vanilla & cedar notes, crisp acidity gives measure & pace. Dash cab franc added for freshness & texture, as in also-stellar 2017." - 95 points
