fruit and an elegant, 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 grapes are grown in the Cape Agulhas wine region, where the sea breezes from
the Atlantic Ocean create a cool-microclimate. The winds blow directly off the ocean in
both a south easterly and south westerly direction, providing consistent freshness
throughout the summer and as a result, temperatures seldom reach above 30°C. This
cool microclimate creates a slow ripening period, allowing the grapes to build flavour
complexity and to produce naturally balanced wines. The diversity of soil types creates
wines with great dimension and structure. A triple wire vertical shoot system is used for
trellising, which helps to provide optimum sunlight and airflow and protects the vines
and shoots against the wind. Nature-friendly chemical sprays are used if necessary
along with copper treatments. Satellite technology is used to help determine optimal
ripening; the grapes are then hand-harvested during the cool of the early morning.
Winemaking
The grapes were cooled to 4°C. A combination of whole bunch and crushed pressings
were vinified; pressing took place very gently, and only the top quality juice was vinified.
Fermentation took place at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The wine was
kept on the gross lees for three weeks and racked before spending a further two
months on the fine lees, with regular stirring, imparting texture. The wine was aged in
total for approximately four months in tank, to retain the zesty fruit characteristics.
Tasting Note
A refreshing and polished Sauvignon Blanc with pronounced aromas of gooseberry
layered with lemon and tropical fruit. Light and zesty with unmistakable purity of fruit
and a mouthwatering finish.
