"A perfumy and mineral-driven style, with a subtle core of sous-bois-laced cherry, blackberry and plum fruit that lets wood spice, briar and iron notes take over through the finish. Offers a lovely backdrop of singed sandalwood" James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 91 points. Moya's Pinot Noir 2012

" It is darker in color and clearly in possession of more fruit intensity with dark cherries, blackcurrant pastille and a touch of violet. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, the alcohol coming through more here with a sense of opulence allied with finesse toward the finish.This is (predictably) an impressive debut."  Neal Martin, Wine Advocate - 92 points. Vrede Pinot Noir 2012

"A tightly coiled, racy style that relies on a piercing iron note through the core of cherry and raspberry coulis flavors. Lots of sous-bois and black tea elements line the finish, with the minerality easily winning out in the end." James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 92 points. Moya's Pinot Noir 2013

"Features a solid core of lightly mulled cherry and blackberry fruit, with hints of black tea, singed cinnamon and sous-bois holding sway through the finish. Retains a perfumy, elegant feel" James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 92 points.Vrede Pinot Noir 2013

"Lively, with sassafras and cinnamon notes backed by juicy cherry fruit. The finish has lightly firm minerality, giving this length and cut." James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 91 points. Moya's Pinot Noir 2014

"Silky and perfumy, with lovely blood orange, cinnamon, rooibos tea and mineral notes that stretch out through the finish. Very elegant." James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 91 points. Vrede Pinot Noir 2014

"It has a very attractive bouquet with scents of lemon curd, almond and brioche, all very focused and delineated."

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate - 93 points. Vrede Chardonnay 2015

"Hannes Storm has made a tantalising expression in this 5 star white vintage...but at 150 cases, sadly few will get to enjoy this beautiful, classically inspired white." Greg Sherwood MW - 94 + points. Vrede Chardonnay 2015

"There’s an herbal edge right up front on the nose of this wine, with some earthy foliage, raw cocoa nib and fresh-tilled dirt aromas

that are amply supported by a fruity core of red cherry flesh, plum, wild strawberry and raspberry. The bright palate offers beautiful minerality, as pristine, pure red-fruit flavors are coupled with a saline burst on the mid palate and through the close. Fine tannins lend a subtle structure. It’s well balanced,focused and precise, a gorgeous wine that is hard to resist now and should evolve well through 2028." Wine Enthusiast-  Editors’ Choice. L.B. 95 points. Vrede Pinot Noir 2015

"Spicy, rose petal and wild strawberry notes are complemented by tangy acidity, subtle oaking and a haunting finish. One of the Cape’s very best pinots." Tim Atkin MW - 96 points. Ignis Pinot Noir 2015

"The palate is well defined with crisp acidity, filigree tannin here with tart red cherries, a splash of soy and linear, precise finish that lingers in the mouth. This is another very fine Pinot Noir from Hannes Storm." Neal Martin, Wine Advocate - 91 points. Ridge Pinot Noir 2015

"Youthful vineyard on heavy clay and shale soils in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, this is richer and more viscous than the début release in 2015, but has the same precision and focus, with spicy, passion fruit and citrus notes and texture from 50% malolactic." Tim Atkin MW - 93 points. Vrede Chardonnay 2016

"From the winery's highest vineyards site, and benefiting from the cool Atlantic influence that provides power and lively acidity - more Côte de Nuits. Fine savoury complexity and a good future " Steven Spurrier, Decanter - 94 points. Ridge Pinot Noir 2016

"Such wonderful fruit that really merits comparison with Côte de Beaune, or great Californian equivalents. Smoky, savoury, layered perfumed and enchanting. Lovely herby thread throughout. " Richard Hemming MW, - 17.5 points. Ignis Pinot Noir 2016

"Really rather Burgundian nose. Proper, well-constructed wine with a dry finish and reasonably accessible opening impressions. Really very exciting and palate-gripping with quite enough ripe fruit. Long. Bravo! " Jancis Robinson MW, 17 points. Vrede Pinot Noir 2016
