The grapes were handled reductively, which reduces the amount of oxygen the fruit has exposure to and helps to preserve fresh, fruity and vibrant notes. The grapes were gently pressed and the juice was then fermented at cool temperatures of between 13˚C and 15˚C, to preserve the varietal characteristics. The wine was left on the lees for six weeks, imparting texture before being racked. The Semillon and Viognier components were matured in third-fill oak barrels for four months, adding subtle complexity.

A refreshing, elegant blend with aromas of gooseberry and tropical fruit, layered with citrus and hints of spice. Beautifully balanced with full-flavoured passion fruit and citrus notes lifted by a zesty, mouthwatering finish.

Winery

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. Even the lowest-lying vineyards still benefit from the cool maritime winds. This maritime climate with the fresh sea breezes, ensures that the vineyards are kept cool which results in late ripening, intense fruit with complex flavours and natural balancing acidity. Lomond’s geological formations are unique; the soils are mostly of sandstone and shale origins with the intrusion of granite in sections creating lean, gravelly soils. This marked diversity of soil types, combined with the valley location creates distinctively fresh wines. The grapes are hand-harvested in the cool, early hours of the morning.
