Lismore Estate Reserve Cuvée Blanc 2022

The Lismore Estate Reserve Cuvée Blanc is a special white wine blend and a result of new plantings that explore the potential of what Lismore can express. The Cuvée Blanc is a blend of Roussanne (90%), Viognier (5%) and Chardonnay (5%); the Roussanne vines were grafted onto the trunks following the estate fire which destroyed vines in 2019. The roots are from 2016 and are planted on the coolest slope on the farm, which makes it the last variety to be picked. The intense citrus notes and the lingering finish are consistent hallmarks of Lismore's specific terroir. At the winery the grapes were gently whole bunch pressed and then the must was cold settled for 24 hours. The juice was racked into 500 and 600-litre Burgundian barrels where 100% spontaneous fermentation took place with natural, wild yeasts. The wine was matured for 11 months on the lees without racking, in French oak, of which 5% was new. Fragrant aromas of yellow plum, spice and orange blossom lead to a beautifully balanced palate, with crisp acidity, saline mineral notes and a lemongrass embroidered finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
