  • Appealing aromas of blackberry and raspberry lead to a smooth, rich palate with polished and integrated tannins enveloping cherry notes. Beautifully integrated oak delivers delicate spicy notes through to a long, elegant finish.

The grapes are grown in the Cape Agulhas wine region, where the sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean create a cool microclimate. The winds blow directly off the ocean in both a south-easterly and south-westerly direction, providing consistent freshness throughout the summer, and as a result, temperatures seldom reach above 30°C. This cool climate creates a slow ripening period, allowing the grapes to build flavor complexity and produce naturally balanced wines. The diversity of soil types creates wines with great dimension and structure. A triple-wire vertical shoot system is used for trellising, which helps to provide optimum sunlight and airflow and protects the vines and shoots against the wind. Nature-friendly chemical sprays are used if necessary along with copper treatments. Satellite technology helps to determine optimal ripening

In 1999, Geoff McIver established the Lomond estate, which is situated on the Agulhas Plain near the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas – the confluence of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans- eight kilometers from the fishing village of Gansbaai and within sight of the sea. The estate takes its name from Ben Lomond Mountain in the Uilenkraal Valley. Award-winning winemaker Hannes Meyer joined the team and skilfully crafts a portfolio of stunning wines from this top winegrowing region, some of which are named after the indigenous flora, known as 'Fynbos'. The vines are planted on as many as 18 different soil types, which appear naturally in small pockets along the slopes and produce intriguingly complex wines, with flavor profiles that differ significantly from one block to the next. The terroir, climate, and location of Lomond combine to create superb single-vineyard wines. The vineyard is sustainably cultivated; Lomond is a member of South Africa’s Integrated Production of Wine (IPW), Wine & Agricultural Ethical Trade Association (WIETA), and the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy.
