The Grand Reserve 2017 shows a complex nose of dark fruits dominated by blackberries and blackcurrant followed by notes of tobacco and tomato leaf, fresh lead pencil shavings and cassis. The palate is elegantly poised with dark red fruit and a smooth chalky tannin finish that’s true to the area.

Muratie Laurens Campher. This unique white blend of predominantly Chenin Blanc with smaller amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Verdehlo and Viognier, is barrel fermented and judiciously oaked in a combination of new and older 500L French Oak barrels for 11 months. An elegant yet intense wine, it shows gorgeous stone fruit flavours of peach and apricot, hints of citrus and a fresh acidity all wrapped in creamy oak.

Eikendal Mon Désir Chardonnay 2018. This highly desirable wine is produced only in exceptional years, with the 2018 vintage crafted from grapes from the cool-climate Elgin Valley. The purity and tight framework on this wine is exceptional and with that hint of flint you can almost see yourself in Burgundy. Aromas and flavours to be expected in the wine, finely balanced by judicious oaking, include fresh citrus and orange blossoms. The trait is typical of the vineyard’s particular clone or cutting, which is traditional to the making of sparkling wine.
