Tucked into the foothills of a dramatic mountain range at the bottom of Africa is Lismore Estate Vineyards. Californian Samantha O'Keefe has found paradise and the perfect terroir. Her passion combined with vines planted at 300 meters, chilled by the winter snow and nourished by the African summer sun, produce classic cool climate wines which are rich, complex and lovingly hand crafted. 

Viognier, a traditional Rhone varietal is perfectly suited to Lismore’s extreme cool-climate terrior. The vineyard block is dryland farmed on decomposed shale and one of the healthiest and well balanced on the farm. The entire team looks forward to the Viognier harvest and the beautiful amber tinged berries.

The grapes were picked and whole bunch pressed, slowly extracting the juice at a rate of 550ltrs per ton.

The juice was settled for 48 hours and was racked into Burgundian barrels (225 and 500 litre, 25% new) for fermentation and 15 months maturation.

Food pairing

Perfect with Lobster, Asian-fusion stir fries, pan-fried duck breast, roast pork belly or creamy pasta dishes.
