Lismore Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Tasting notes

It has an attractive, complex bouquet with lovely light white peach and fynbos scents. The palate is well-balanced with a spicy, almost petrolly opening. There is an attractive hazelnut seam and a complex, driven finish.

Producer note

Samantha O'Keefe left California with dreams of starting a family and finding paradise. Tucked into the foothills of a dramatic mountain range at the bottom of Africa, Lismore Estate Vineyards was born alongside her nascent family. Passion and vision, combined with vines planted at 300 metres, chilled by winter snow and nourished by the African summer sun, produces classic, cool climate wines which are rich, complex and lovingly hand crafted.

Vineyard note

There are a total of 12.5 ha planted with Chardonnay, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier.

Viticulture

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 Cape.

Vinification

Barrel fermented and aged 11 months in older 300 litre barrels. Occasional battonage with extended lees contact.

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc 100%
