*Point in time and Revived. I’m unsure why this still carries the “REDUX” moniker, as it is the current release from this vintage. It seems appropriate when a cellar release, such as the 2015. Anyways, Fruit from the Starick family vineyard at Springton in the Eden Valley, planted in 1983. Whole bunch pressed. Winemakers Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela.

How can one not enjoy this nose? Apple flesh and limey fresh. Cool stony, slate with a sprinkling of brown spices and blossom. Stony and intense through the body too. While the finish carries the slatey, briny theme long with pronounced acidity, it feels firm and little obtuse compared to its sibling the Tripelpunkt, but I’m nitpicking. Drink now to 2031 with ease.
Rating: 18.25/20 (92/100)
