Description

Lismore Chardonnay

Lismore Chardonnay has a complex, expressive bouquet with touches of smoke and walnut infusing the citrus fruit, a hint of toffee just underneath. The palate is lively and ripe on the entry with apricot, mandarin, orange zest and white peach. It is long in the mouth with a fine, walnut-inspired finish

Tucked into the foothills of a dramatic mountain range at the bottom of Africa is Lismore Estate Vineyards. Californian Samantha O’Keefe has found paradise and the perfect terroir. Her passion combined with vines planted at 300 meters, chilled by the winter snow and nourished by the African summer sun, produce classic cool climate wines which are rich, complex and lovingly hand crafted.

The Lismore Estate has a total of 12.5 ha planted with Chardonnay, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier.
Lismore’s vineyards are planted on slopes at the base of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range. The
combination of elevation and climate make for an extended ripening period which is roughly 3-4 weeks later
than the more traditional wine growing areas in the Western Cap.
The grapes were whole bunched pressed, barrel fermented and aged for 11 months in older French barrels of
225-300l. The wine saw regular battonage, imparting texture and weight, but no malolactic fermentation which
leaves a fresh acidity.
Set in the Overberg region, with the Sonderend mountains as a backdrop, Greyton is all oak-lined lanes and itsy, bitsy country cottages. It is like you have wound back the clock and time travelled into an olde English parish, with white picket fences and farmers’ markets to boot.
Lismore Chardonnay 2013

“Grown mostly on shale soils, Chardonnay is the dominant variety at Lismore. Lightly oaked and featuring 50% malolactic fermentation for the first time, this is a significant step up on the 2011, with nutmeg spice, savoury complexity and a shimmering minerally core. Drink: 2015-20” 93 Points Tim Atkin

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint.

Chenin Blanc dominated dry and minerally with a tang of honeyed melon on the palate that leads to the crisp floral finish. The harvest is made entirely by hand yielding 60 hl/ha and 150kg of grapes produced 100 litres of juice in this vintage. Fermentation was controlled at between 18-20 degrees to preserve the precious aromas.
