- 93 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Anthony Mueller: „A blend of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cab Sauvignon, the 2017 De Compostella begins with a dark-fruited and juicy core, with dusty flowers and an herbal edge with oak that is pleasurable on the nose. The palate is fresh and clean with a greenness to it provided by the Cabernets. With a chocolaty sensation, the structure is still tight but is showing well, considering that this was bottled just a week before I sampled it. The finish is structured with focus, power and elegance. Keep an eye out for this bottling, and grab one if you can, as there were only 6,000 bottles made.“

- 95 Punkte VINOUS, Neal Martin: „The 2017 MR de Compostella is a blend of 43% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot cultivated on Dolomite granite soils. I am accustomed to the elegant and beautifully defined nose, having tasted every vintage since the maiden release; suffice it to say that the 2017 is as thrilling as the first time I encountered this wine. The nose features laser-focused red berry fruit laced with orange blossom, pressed rose petals and light sous-bois aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very smooth in texture and, while not the most powerful "MR" that I have tasted, it offers discreet black pepper and clove notes on the persistent and unusually understated finish. Born with immense pedigree, this MR de Compostella should be afforded three or four years in the cellar.“

Notizen des Weinguts: Two visionary winemakers & lifelong friends, Mzokhona Mvemve & Bruwer Raats, had a meeting of minds to combine their artistry to create a singular wine that transcends time. MR de Compostella was born inspired by a constellation of stars merging together to create something spectacular. A wine driven neither by style nor variety but by its leading component, quality, they take the very best of each variety in each vintage to create an ultra-premium wine of distinction. Always in the pursuit of perfectionism, every vintage marks the start of a new challenge for Mzokona and Bruwer. “With MR De Compostella, we set out to achieve consistent, world-class quality wine every vintage. To do this, we ensured that the five Bordeaux varieties that we cultivate – namely Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and of course, our speciality, Cabernet Franc – are planted in the soil they are each best suited to. This results in a lot of small parcels in our vineyards – sometimes there will be a row or two of Cabernet Sauvignon in the far left corner of that vineyard, or some Malbec in the very specific right hand corner of this one. It’s not exactly practical, but it’s the only way we can make magic happen,” explains Bruwer. In truth, the magic of MR is in the process, as each vintage requires refined craft, skilled precision and endless patience. Once each individual component has been matured in separate barrels, the wines are lined up for a blind tasting. This is a lengthy task, whereby Mzokona and Bruwer score each wine individually, before tallying up an average score, removing everything below 90 points, and taste again. The results are all led by outstanding quality, with the overall winner eventually becoming the leading component in the new vintage, the second being the second leading component and so on and so forth. This special process is repeated per wine, per vintage. While rigorous, this tried and test method has resulted in 11 elegant yet completely different vintages of MR de Compostella – a wine as consistent in quality as it is at winning awards – and that results in something truly beyond our world.
