Press reviews:

Tim Atkin MW: “First released as a Cape Winemakers' Guild Auction lot back in 2015, this has now become a feature of the main Newton Johnson range. Sourced from a vineyard on deep clay and granite soils, this has considerable depth and concentration with some tobacco notes from 15% whole bunches, subtle wood integration and complex, savoury fruit flavours. Drink 2021-2030." 96 points

Jancis Robinson MW: “Pale ruby. Really rather warm, ripe nose and then lovely freshness on the palate. Another wine from this address that seems rather maritime. Already fun to drink with lots of undertow and a very delicate hand regarding oak. Drink now-2020-2026.” 17 points
