Ripe pineapple, melon and orange blossom flavours dominate on the nose, supported by hints of lemon cream, grapefruit and dried apricots. Flavours of white peach, cashew nuts and caramel linger on the pallet. The wine has a brilliant linear acidity and dominant dense core with layered sweetness due to the natural fermentation. The roundness on the pallet and a beautifully integrated texture supported by a creamy finish coats your mouth and make you want to spend more time in the presence of this big wine.
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.
