A complex, expressive bouquet leads to a lively and ripe
palate of apricot, mandarin, orange zest and white
peach, with notes of toasted hazelnut on the long,
elegant finish.
Producer Note
Samantha O'Keefe left California with dreams of starting a family and finding
paradise. 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.
Vintage
2015 was considered as one of the best years for white wine production in South
Africa, producing berries of excellent quality. The 2015 wines show great purity of
fruit, freshness and elegance.
Vineyard
The Overberg region is rapidly earning a reputation for premium, cool climate
grapes. Lismore is the only registered wine estate in the Greyton ward. Greyton is a
designated ward, in recognition of the unique expression of terroir in the wines that
are produced there. The Lismore Estate has a total of 12.5 hectares of vineyard,
planted on slopes at the base of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range. The
combination of elevation and climate make for an extended ripening period, which
is approximately three to four weeks later than the more traditional wine growing
areas in the Western Cape.
Winemaking
The grapes were whole bunched pressed, barrel fermented and aged for 11 months
in older French barrels of 225 to 300 litres. The wine went through regular
"bâtonnage" or stirring of the lees, which imparted texture and weight. Winemaker
Samantha O'Keefe did not allow malolactic fermentation to take place and as a
result the wine has a fresh acidity.
Tasting Note
A complex, expressive bouquet with touches of smoke and walnut infusing the citrus
fruit and a hint of toffee just underneath. The palate is lively and ripe on the entry
with apricot, mandarin, orange zest and white peach. It is long in the mouth with a
fine, walnut inspired finish.
