94 points Tim Atkin, MW: "'Pofadder was one of South Africa’s first serious single vineyard Cinsaults and remains in the variety’s top rank. Pale and aromatic, this comes from schist soils, which seem to emphasise the perfume even more. Balanced and refined with red cherry and pomegranate freshness. 2020-26. (2018)"
Producer notes: "We picked the Cinsaut grapes in the Pofadder vineyard quite early and the result is a wine with an ultra-bright red fruit spectrum, almost like pomegranate seeds; and the fruit is very lifted in the glass. The tannins are still tight, steely -- even crispy and granular, and the fruit is very much like the day we picked the grapes, therefore the wine still needs more time to develop in the bottle... or in the glass, where it develops some spicy aromatics when given the time to do so. Currently this 2017 presents itself as very-straight-down- the-line."
