Roussanne, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Sémillon don’t jump off the page as immediate bedfellows, but winemaker John Seccombe has crafted a beauty here. Lemon curd, buttered popcorn and praline are followed by a densely textured yet fresh palate. Touches of stone fruit complete the picture. Along with the Cartology, this is another fantastic addition to the Cape scene. Fergus Stewart, Private Account Manager

OTHER - Chenin in lead role in 2014 multi-region blend. Fresher, less oxidative than roussanne-based 2013, throwing focus on the many intriguing layers of flavour - almonds, citrus & spice - & creamy yet firm texture, like white wine in red wine's skin; should age accordingly. Fascinating & fabulous. Platter Wine Guide, wineonaplatter.com, Oct 2015
