Lomond Wines Phantom Cape Agulhas Pinot Noir 2021

Fragrant aromas of rose petals and spice envelop notes
of wild, red berried fruit and savoury notes through to a
long, silky finish.
Producer Note
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 kilometres from the fishing village of Gansbaai and
within sight of the sea. The estate takes its name from the 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 flavour 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.
Vintage
A very dry, cool summer resulted in a long, slow ripening period producing wines with
intense fruit flavours.
Vineyard
The estate is located in the Cape Agulhas appellation of origin, at the latitude 34˚ 34´
south. Altitudes vary, with some blocks at 50 metres above sea level, while others are
located around 100 metres’ elevation, with an unhindered exposure to the sea. This
single vineyard is planted in south westerly facing blocks on the upper reaches of the
farm in sandy, gravelly and highly weathered soils, with a clay substructure. This aspect
ensures that these vines are cooled during the summer months by the prevailing winds
from the sea. The breezes blow directly off the ocean in both a south easterly and south
westerly direction, providing consistent coolness throughout the summer months, with
temperatures seldom reaching above 30°C. This cool microclimate creates a slow
ripening period, allowing the grapes to build flavour complexity and to produce
naturally balanced wines.
Winemaking
The hand-picked and hand-sorted grapes were fermented with selected yeasts in open
500-litre barrels and handled reductively with regular manual punch-downs. The wine
then underwent malolactic conversion in barrels, which were a combination of 2nd, 3rd
and 4th fill French oak. The wine was then matured for 12 months in the same French
oak barrels.
Tasting Note
Fragrant aromas of rose petals and oriental spice lead to notes of wild, red-berried fruit
and an appealing earthy complexity. Elegant, with beautifully integrated oak, refined
tannins and long, silky finish.
