About

93

"Very juicy and engaging, with a mix of white peach, yellow apple, persimmon and clementine notes working together, backed by light meringue and Key lime zest accents. The long finish ripples with energy and freshness. Drink now through 2024. 232 cases made, 20 cases imported. — JM"

93 Neal Martin - Vinous Media

"The 2017 Quarts Chenin "Leliefontein," matured for 12 months in neutral oak, has a very attractive bouquet not dissimilar to the previous vintage in terms of fruit profile, but perhaps with just a touch more delineation. The lightly spiced, well-defined palate offers crisp acidity and orange peel and dried mango flavors. A crushed stone element defines a finish that feels very long and satisfying. Superb."

91 Anthony Mueller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Quartz Chenin Blanc is more open and approachable on the nose, with a broad spectrum of citrus, underripe stone fruits and pineapple tones with a leesy approach. In the mouth, the wine is medium to full-boded, with a complex texture, subtle oak expressions, waxy citrus peel and white flowers, followed by lingering finish. This wine will age for years to come."

Product Description:

"This wine is lemon-straw in colour, with a mineral character on the nose and hints of oatmeal, ripe citrus and spice. There are notes of white peach, oatmeal and almonds on the creamy palate which finishes with a fresh, lemon-pithiness. Best served at about 12 °C, this wine will show optimally if decanted when drunk within the first 3 years after bottling. Ageing potential 10-20 years." - Winery
