97 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Huilkrans is 100% Chenin Blanc from the Citrusdal Mountains. Its bouquet is more waxy and resinous than Alheit’s other 2018s, but no less compelling. Discreet scents of granite and shale emerge with continued aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, crisp and poised, with a lick of salinity toward the finish, and mango and dried pineapple toward the persistent, pixelated finish. This is another killer wine from Chris Alheit. Drink: 2022-2042. (Nov 2019)"
94 points Wine Spectator: "[$100 list] This stunning white is expressive, yet intense acidity imparts fine harmony and precision. Nectarine and blood orange flavors are backed by lemongrass and salty elements that create tension. This gains intensity midpalate before winding down and finding equilibrium on the finish. Wait several years for this to come together and you'll be in for a treat. Best from 2023 through 2033. 30 cases imported. (11/15/20)"
