Lismore Estate sits under dramatic mountains near Greyton about 200k east of Cape Town and is the creation of talented Californian winemaker Samantha O’Keefe. Samantha needs all our help and support at present as in January this year her home, vineyards and winery were destroyed by a wildfire, including her entire 2019 vintage. Luckily, there are still stocks available of this delicious Viognier which is one of South Africa best. Fermentation and aging in old barrels and 20 % in a concrete egg give attractive vanilla notes and texture to the honeysuckle nose and rounded peach and apricot palate. the quartz rich soils give a mineral note to the long dry finish, impressive.
