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:
'The Reserve Syrah from Greyton property Lismore is fantastic. Winemaking involved 40% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 10 months in 500-litre barrels. The nose is subtle and elusive with notes of cherry, cranberry, olive, white pepper, coriander and fynbos. The palate shows extraordinary purity and freshness while the tannins are super-fine. Lovely fruit upfront before an intensely savoury finish. It’s sophisticated but not too severe and gives real pleasure.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 97/100

'Grown on shale soils in Greyton, this superb Syrah is consistently one of the best South African expressions of the grape, showing classic garrigue and pepper spice aromas, fresh acidity, deftly handled oak and succulent red berry fruit. 2020-28.' – Tim Atkin SA Report 2018, 95/100

'The 2017 Estate Reserve Syrah comes entirely from Greyton, 40% whole cluster and aged in 500-liter barrels with 40% new oak. It has a very refined, perfumed bouquet of red cherries, crushed strawberry, broom, iris and a touch of potpourri. The palate is very well balanced, offering fine tannin on the entry, good weight in the mouth and blackberry, blueberry, clove, star anise and light fennel notes toward the finish. There is very good length here, but it needs another year or two in bottle to fully coalesce. Great potential.' – Neal Martin Report, 93+/100
