Lismore Estate Vineyards Western Cape Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2020

A funky and sauvage Sauvignon Blanc with atypical
explosive spice, toffee and passion flower flavours. A true
expression of this unique terroir and its equally unique
winemaker.
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 wine was made in an 'oxidative' style. The must was barrel-fermented in older 300
litre barrels to bring forward richness and additional complexity. The wine was given
extended less contact with occasional bâtonnage, to contribute further to the rounder
mouth feel and creaminess of this elegantly textured wine. The wine was aged for nine
months. The bracing acidity that is customary in New World Sauvignon Blancs has
been brought into balance with a carefully chosen pick date and the barrel
fermentation, creating a full-bodied, balanced wine.
Tasting Note
This barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc is a full bodied, elegant and beautifully
balanced wine. Floral notes of passion flower, fynbos and granadilla, combine with
guava, gooseberry and pear on the palate along with an underlying minerality,
imparting its signature style. A true expression of this unique terroir and its equally
unique winemaker.
