'Grapes from Stanford. 10% skin fermented before maturation lasting 11 months in oak, 20% new. A top note of floral perfume before white peach, lime and lemon plus a little flinty reduction on the nose while the palate shows great fruit definition, thrilling acidity and a super-dry finish. Delightfully lean and nervy (alcohol is 12%).' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100

'The 2020 Chenin Blanc has a detailed, finely delineated nose, delicate touches of orange blossom and jasmine emerging with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced, taut and linear, with fine acidity – almost crystalline. Discreet touches of mandarin and passion fruit develop toward the racy finish. Understated and classy.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 93/100 (Nov 2021)

'A new wine in the Lismore portfolio, this was made with four tons of fruit donated by a grower in Stanford. Naturally fermented in older wood, it's a tangy, green apple style with no malolactic, notes of fennel and lanolin and a racy, low-alcohol finish. Drink 2022-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

Producer information Lismore Estate Vineyards situated in Greyton, Overberg, was created in 2000 by Californian born Samantha O'Keefe. The location of the estate provides a combination of cool winter weather and hot African summers which produce Lismore's 'rich, complex and lovingly hand-crafted' wines. Lismore wines caught their big break in 2012 when the Lismore Chardonnay and Viognier were each given a 92 points score by Neal Marin (from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) which led to international success.
