Lomond Wines Estate Western Cape Cape Agulhas Sauvignon Blanc 2021

A pure and fresh Sauvignon Blanc packed with zesty citrus
notes and layered with white stone fruits, passion fruit, a
hint of blackcurrant and classic cool-climate minerality.
Producer Note
In 1999, Geoff McIver established the Lomond estate, which is situated on the Agulhas
Plain near the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas – the confluence of the
Indian and Atlantic Oceans- eight kilometres from the fishing village of Gansbaai and
within sight of the sea. The estate takes its name from the Ben Lomond Mountain in the
Uilenkraal Valley. Award-winning winemaker Hannes Meyer joined the team and skilfully
crafts a portfolio of stunning wines from this top winegrowing region, some of which are
named after the indigenous flora, known as 'Fynbos'. The vines are planted on as many
as 18 different soil types, which appear naturally in small pockets along the slopes and
produce intriguingly complex wines, with flavour profiles that differ significantly from one
block to the next. The terroir, climate and location of Lomond combine to create
superb single-vineyard wines. The vineyard is sustainably cultivated; Lomond is a
member of South Africa’s Integrated Production of Wine (IPW), Wine & Agricultural
Ethical Trade Association (WIETA) and the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy.
Vintage
An exceptionally long, slow ripening period resulted in intense fruit flavours.
Vineyard
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. The
vineyards are planted in the south facing blocks on the lower reaches of the farm as
well as within view of the sea, in sandy, gravelly and highly weathered soils with a clay
substructure. This aspect ensures that these vines are cooled during the summer
months by the prevailing winds from the sea. The breezes blow directly off the ocean in
both a south easterly and south westerly direction, providing consistent coolness
throughout the summer months, with temperatures seldom reaching above 30°C. This
cool microclimate creates a slow ripening period, allowing the grapes to build flavour
complexity and to produce naturally balanced wines.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested at optimum ripeness, at between 22˚ to 24˚ Balling
by vineyard block or part thereof. The fruit was handled reductively, which reduces the
amount of oxygen the fruit has exposure to and helps to preserve fresh, fruity and
vibrant notes. Each block was vinified separately. The juice was cold-fermented
between 13˚C and 15˚C to preserve the natural Sauvignon Blanc flavours. The wine
was left on the lees for six weeks before being racked. The 'Estate' blend was then
created using elements from various blocks to ensure the result was greater than the
sum of its parts.
Tasting Note

white stone fruits, passion fruit, a hint of blackcurrant and classic Agulhas minerality.
