Lismore Estate Reserve Viogner 2017 

HANSCORE: 23/25 

If Paradigms were cheeseburgers, Sam o’Keefe would be Ronald McDonald. The sort of wine that stretches the limits of what one thinks a wine can be.

👃🏼 ripe orange, citrus blossom, butter toffee, sea spray, roasted poppyseed & grilled peaches.

👄  It’s hard to explain how powerful this is. The concentration of stone fruit on the palate would be overwhelming, were it not braced by supremely regal orange & lime acidity. The tail carries the most glorious complications of oak, almonds & hints of white pepper.”

🔬 Greyton is fairly cool, so the grapes enjoy uncharacteristically long hang time, before being hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed. Juice was tossed into Burgundian barrels for 15 months of fermentation and maturation. Who knows when one ended and the next one began? It’s all jazz. 

💰 ZAR580.00 (as of October 2020)
