Vinous: 96 Points

The 2018 Fire by Night is pure Swartland Chenin Blanc and aged in the same minimalintervention manner as Cartology. This is quite reticent on the nose at first, manifesting orange blossom and honeysuckle/jasmine aromas with aeration but never achieving the intensity of the Cartology. The entrancing palate features tangerine and quince notes on the entry, pitch-perfect acidity and an effervescent finish that urges you to take another sip immediately. Feel that energy! This is a quite brilliant wine from Chris Alheit.

Wine Spectator: 93 Points

Chiseled and energetic, this Chenin shows melon, yellow apple and mirabelle plum flavors of great intensity, underscored by mouthwatering acidity. Hints of juniper and sea salt add a savory, fresh component, which extends on the finish. Beautifully put together, with a gorgeous mouthfeel. Best from 2022 through 2032. 66 cases imported. — AZ


Wine Advocate: 91 Points

Displaying a crystalline expression in the glass, the 2018 Fire By Night offers a precise frame of lemon skin, graham cracker and citrus blossom on the nose, with walnut skin and wet concrete. Light to medium-bodied, the 12.8% alcohol wine is delicately balanced on the palate, with flavors of spicy lemon zest and white pepper that build in the mouth and merge to a subtle marshmallowy character. The wine concludes with a long–lingering finish that is food-friendly and beckons me back for another sip and shows the quietest of the Chenin Blanc range this year.
