96 points Tim Atkin
"This wonderfully ageworthy Chenin Blanc comes from the same five sites in the Swartland as it has since its maiden vintage in 2015. Barrel-fermented with full malolactic, it has amazing grip and minerality, with thatch, nutmeg and aniseed aromas, honey, baking spice and tarte tatin flavours and palate-cleansing acidity."
"From four sites planted with vines between 38 and 50 years old.
Rich and tense. Very confident and like textbook old-vine Chenin. Slightly pithy on the end. Great stuff! 17/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
The Landscape Series is a range of five wines that show the best of Gabriëlskloof’s vineyards and winemaking and aims to be a sincere representation of the elements that make them unique. The four vineyards used to make this wine are dryland bush vine and have never been irrigated. These vineyards are very labour intensive to farm, and as a result of the arid conditions, yield precious little fruit. Tasting Note: Forelle pear, lemon verbena and delicate tropical notes lead a precise nose before dark honey and dried nori bring umami against a green olive brininess that fills out the palate. Finally, a preserved lemon salinity flavors a bracingly clean finish.
