Lomond Wines Lomond Estate SSV Cape Agulhas 2021

A refreshing, elegant blend with aromas of gooseberry
and citrusy tropical fruit and a hint of spice lifted by a
zesty and mouthwatering finish.
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. 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.
Winemaking
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.
