As usual, the wine is bright and bristling, but still the most restrained of our bottlings. It usually takes a few years to show its full potential. Now, its youthful nose shows thatch, fynbos, and some citrus. The tightly layered palate is slightly saline and quite pithy. There are hints of honey and pear to come. I think this wine will grow into something outstanding.

The 2021 Fire By Night, formerly known as Broom Ridge, has a lovely, seductive bouquet with mirabelle, jasmine and light candle wax aromas. It needs quite a bit of coaxing but then responds enthusiastically. The palate is very well balanced and cohesive with commendable salinity and a spiciness that lingers off-stage for a while before delivering enticing lemongrass and white pepper notes on the finish. Superb.

A well-honed white, with ripe melon and fig fruit, ground ginger and white pepper, chamomile and lemon zest notes. Sleek and lightly silky on the palate, with a rich, subtle base of stone, smoke and beeswax bringing a savory edge and complexity. Chenin Blanc. Drink now through 2028. 530 cases made, 60 cases imported.
