  • A stunning example of a restrained, cool climate Chardonnay. Intense citrus aromas and classic soft fruits, jasmine, and walnut are layered with honey and vanilla notes. The palate is beautifully balanced with refreshing, crisp acidity and a distinct minerality. Concentrated and refined, with a crisp, clean citrus finish.

Having pioneered a new extremely cool climate region in South Africa, Samantha chose to release an Estate Reserve range to illustrate what the vineyards are capable of. The wines are produced from very low-yielding vines. The vineyard is planted at 300 meters above sea level, in the foothills of the Sonderend Mountain Range. The vines are grown in decomposed shale over clay soils and are dry-farmed, which contributes to the deep concentration in the wine. Low mean temperatures during February contribute to an extended ripening period, resulting in a harvest period that can be three to four weeks later than traditional wine-growing regions in South Africa. The intense citrus notes and the lingering finish are consistent trademarks of Lismore's specific terroir. The distinctive minerality of this Chardonnay is a clear indication of the cool climate in which it is grown.

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 which are rich, complex and lovingly hand-crafted.
