Lismore Cape South Coast Syrah 2018

Dense and smoky black olives, beautifully concentrated
with lovely finesse and elegance. The epitome of fine
Syrah.


Producer Note
Californian Samantha O'Keefe has found paradise and the perfect terroir. Tucked
into the foothills of a dramatic mountain range at the bottom of Africa, Lismore Estate
Vineyards was born alongside her nascent family. A passionate vision, combined
with vines planted at 300 metres, which are 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
The Syrah is made from 50% Greyton fruit planted in heavy schist (decomposed
shale) soils with no irrigation; and 50% Elgin fruit grown in sandstone and shales soils.
Two of the coolest climates in South Africa with extreme diurnal temperature shifts
which promote complexity, depth and concentration and presents a Syrah that has
a very distinct sense of place.


Winemaking
The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness. 40% were fermented in whole bunches
in large 5,000 litre vats with gentle pump overs twice per day. The process allowed
for a long extraction period which lends to the fruit expression and structure of this
wine. The free run wine was drained off and the fermented grapes were then
pressed in a traditional wooden basket press. The wine was racked into 225, 300
and 500 litre barrels where malolactic fermentation took place and the wine was
aged for 12 months. 15% new French oak was used.


Tasting Note
An exotic experience which shifts your mind to another place. Cassis, blackberry
and cherry on the nose with hints of white pepper, ground herbs and the strong
floral perfume of crushed violets. Light and elegant, but structured with a fresh
acidity.
