Notes

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.

Tasting notes:
'One of two Lismore estate Viogniers reviewed in my 2019 report, this comes from a 0.3-hectare block that was planted 13 years ago. Rich, complex and concentrated, it has pear and apricot fruit, a hint of nectarine and a patina of vanilla and cinnamon spice. 2019-23.' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 94/100

'Matured for 15 months in French oak, 20% new. A top note of blossom before citrus and peach with a little reduction in the background. Dense fruit, snappy acidity and long, dry finish. Rather forceful and unapproachable.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
