Lismore Estate Vineyards Cape South Coast Chardonnay 2020

A complex, expressive bouquet leads to a lively and
mineral palate of apricot, mandarin, orange zest and
white peach, with notes of toasted hazelnut on the long,
elegant finish.
Producer Note
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 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.
Vineyard
Samantha O’Keefe performed miracles to produce this wine: because a fire destroyed
part of her vineyards and all of her finished wine in late 2019, she had to select wines
from different vineyards in Stellenbosch, with 15% also coming from the upper Hemel-enAarde valley in Hermanus, whose grapes bore close resemblance to those lost on her
vineyard.
Winemaking
The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and whole bunch pressed, slowly
extracting the juice at a rate of 600 litres 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 flavour, rather than obtaining overt, extracted buttery notes
from the oak.
Tasting Note
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.
