Decanter Magazine: 95 Points

Sourced from celebrated grape-grower Basie van Lill’s property, planted in 1981 and 1984. Light reduction before citrus, peach and earthiness as well as yeasty complexity on the nose. The palate, meanwhile, has excellent fruit concentration matched by driving acidity before a finish that is long and pithy. Rich but balanced.

Drinking Window 2021 - 2029

Vinous: 95 Points

The 2019 Magnetic North is matured in cement eggs and used oak barrels. It has a lovely bouquet of peach skin, melted candle wax and light orange blossom scents that is simply irresistible. The aromatics are beautifully defined. The palate is medium bodied and full of tension and energy, with a fine bead of acidity and a superb tensile, citric attack on the finish. A subtle egg yolk note lingers on the aftertaste, possibly deriving from the 3.5gm/L residual sugar. Superb. -- Neal Martin

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

A rich and creamy, medium- to full-bodied white, but with a spine of vivid acidity keeping this fresh and racy, enlivening flavors of dried apricot, kumquat, persimmon and chamomile. Zips along to the lightly toasty finish, with hints of salted nut and butter. Drink now through 2026. 175 cases made, 28 cases imported. — AN
