Lismore Chardonnay 2014, Greyton

Tasting notes

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.

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

Whole bunched pressed. Barrel Fermented and aged 11 months in older French barrels 225- 300l. Regular battonage. No malolactic fermentation is permitted which leaves a fresh acidity.

Grape

Chardonnay 100%
