perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a
textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple. A sensual
and exotic experience.
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.
Winemaking
The grapes were picked and whole bunch pressed, slowly extracting the juice at a rate
of 550 litres per tonne. The juice was settled for 48 hours and then racked into a
combination of seasoned 225 litre Burgundian barrels, where it was matured for 10
months. 10% of the production was fermented and matured in a 600 litre egg-shaped
tank, retaining the purity of fruit. Balance is the key to this wine. Viognier is an aromatic
and generous varietal, it benefitted from the barrel maturation and lees contact
creating a fuller mouth-feel and increased texture, which is beautifully balanced by the
firm backbone of acidity.
Tasting Note
This expressive, barrel-fermented Viognier seduces you with the beautiful perfume of
honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and
pineapple. A lifted, poised and elegant Viognier.
