The wine is perfumed with wonderful exotic aromas of jasmine, lavender, orange peel, hints dried apricot and white peach that balms the air. The palate is refined and filled with quince flavours complemented with hints of saffron, nutmeg, ginger and cashews. The wine has a flinty mineral finish and well balanced linear acidity.
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.
