93 points "Cropped at 16.86 hectoliter per hectare and raised in 35% new oak barrels, the 2010 Chardonnay is more reserved than the 2009 but retains very fine delineation with hints of grapefruit and nectarine. The palate has a very attractive hazelnut and lanolin-tinged entry. It has wonderful definition and a taut, citrus finish that is long in the mouth. Try to resist temptation and cellar this for several years. Drink 2012-2020." Best 2012-2020

93 points "Lush and inviting, with layers of fig, persimmon, mango and creamed Jonagold apple fruit, all supported by finely beaded acidity that lends definition and length to the finish. More cut and length than just weight in the end. Drink now through 2017. From South Africa.—J.M. " Best 2012-2017
