FINE+RARE, Sep 2023

This wine still feels young, the nose brooding with dark fruit, leather and liquorice, the palate tightly packed with intense, black-berried fruit and a chalky grip of tannins. With the year’s conditions only two tons per hectare were harvested, the smallest crop ever from the site – and given the small volumes this was never released, with only 800 bottles made. Aged for 24 months in concrete egg.

The 2011 Porseleinberg never received a commercial release. Louw told me that with a depleted 1,200 bottles they opted to keep the bottles, occasionally selling dribs and drabs to visitors and a few leaked into local auction. Based on this showing, I hope that this sophomore does see the light of day. It is more understated than the 2010 yet delivers the same unerring delineation and poise, a little more tertiary on the nose, hints of morels and girolles permeating the black fruit. The palate is harmonious and fresh as a daisy. The satin-like texture is so seductive, and it fans out beautifully towards the finish with a little more red fruit than the entry. When this is belatedly released, don’t hesitate in trying to obtain a bottle.
