  • A complex, expressive bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits layered with brioche, honey, and walnut. The palate is carried through by a distinct minerality and crisp acidity through to a lingering citrus finish.

The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and the whole bunch was pressed, slowly extracting the juice at a rate of 600 liters per tonne. The Chardonnay was naturally fermented and aged in 300-litre French oak barrels, with 20% new oak. Although the oak gives this wine its luxurious texture, the philosophy was to ensure the fruit, acidity, and pH drove the wine’s flavor, rather than obtaining overt, extracted buttery notes from the oak. 

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 meters, which are chilled by winter snow and nourished by the African summer sun, produces classic, cool climate wines that are rich, complex, and lovingly hand-crafted.
