Aromas of blackcurrants & raspberry greet you on the nose along with tea leaf nuances and hints of cedar wood. The palate is distinguished and complex with a refreshing acidity supported by soft, silky smooth tannins. The flavours from the nose follow through to the juicy palate along with flavours of cassis. These fresh, fruity flavours will linger on the palate and slowly fade away.
Lourensford Estate is one of the world’s most beautiful wine estates we offer a visual feast across 4,000 hectares of forest, fynbos, fruit orchards and vineyards, which rise up the slopes of the Helderberg Mountains, caressed by breezes off the Atlantic Ocean.
Established by Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel in 1709, Lourensford has a proud history as a world class fruit farm and the wealth of glorious Proteas point to our rich floral heritage. Fortunately, the winemaking tradition was revived when well known Cape businessman, Dr Christo Wiese purchased the Estate in 1998.
