Lismore Estate Reserve Viognier 2017

Having pioneered winemaking in the cool climate Overberg region of South Africa, Samantha O'Keefe chose to release an Estate Reserve range of wines to illustrate just what the vineyards in the foothills of the Sonderend Mountain Range are capable of. The wines are produced from very low yielding vines and taste like no others grown in South Africa.

The Estate Reserve Viognier is vinified using minimal intervention, allowing the wine to showcase this special terroir. The grapes were slowly whole bunch pressed and then racked into 225 and 500 litre Burgundian barrels (30% new) for spontaneous and natural fermentation and 18 months' maturation.

The Lismore Estate Reserve Viognier has always stood out as something special. The expression is dried apricot and fresh ginger with hints of honeysuckle through to a concentrated palate with fresh, clean acidity which supports the extravagance of the palate. Perfect with Lobster or gently spiced Asian food.
