Rooiberg Red Muscadel 2014 | Platter 4.5*
Platter 2016 ” … more serious [than 2013], deserving of contemplation. Vast honeyed raisin richness (264g/l sugar) thrillingly balanced by acidity to fine, lively finish.
Rustenberg Straw Wine 2015 | Platter 4*
Platter 2017 “First since 12, wooded 15 from air-dried chenin & lightly peachy viognier, though raisin & honey more obvious. Almost too soft, opulent & unctious, but undoubtedly luxurious. 375ml. WO Stellenbosch.
