“Only one Goldkaps made in 2014, so here it is. Impressive bouquet of lemon blossom, green pear, herbs, warm slate, ginger spice, sniff of honeycomb. Generous in the palate, driving, concentrated, powerful, great carriage of flavour that lingers and then twists into soft, mouthwatering acidity. Minerals tussle with slick patches of honey. Beautiful, pure-feeling, superb.”


Mike Bennie, Wine Front, 2016


"This non-auction gold-capsule bottling delivers a multifaceted nose featuring candied lime peel, apple and quince jellies, heliotrope and an intriguing meld of yeasty stale bread, florally honeyed and subtly truffly manifestations of botrytis. The creamy, expansive palate reprises all of the aforementioned elements, but also introduces generous parallel juiciness of fresh apple and lime. Displaying wonderful lift and delicacy, the lusciously lingering finish is transparent to stony, crystalline and floral nuances."
