Syrah 2020 – Lismore

Full Body Red

An exotic experience which shifts your mind to another place. Cassis, blackberryn and cherry on the nose with hints of white pepper, ground herbs and the strongn floral perfume of crushed violets. Light and elegant, but structured with a fresh acidity. Delicious with a slow-roasted shoulder of lamb and gratin dauphinoise; wood-fired pigeon or a warm lentil salad with Portobello mushrooms. To experience the best this wine has to offer, decanting is suggested.

About this wine

The grapes to produce Syrah Lismore were picked at optimal ripeness. 40% were fermented in whole bunches in large 5,000 litre vats with gentle pump overs twice per day. The process allowed for a long extraction period which lends to the fruit expression and structure of this Syrah Lismore . The free run wine was drained off and the fermented grapes were then pressed in a traditional wooden basket press. The wine was racked into 225, 300 and 500 litre barrels where malolactic fermentation took place and the wine was aged for 12 months. 15% new French oak was used.The Syrah is made from 50% Greyton fruit planted in heavy schist (decomposed shale) soils with no irrigation; and 50% Elgin fruit grown in sandstone and shales soils. Two of the coolest climates in South Africa with extreme diurnal temperature shifts which promote complexity, depth and concentration and presents a Syrah that has a very distinct sense of place.In Lismore Estate Vineyards the Californian Samantha O’Keefe has found paradise and the perfect terroir. Hidden at the foot of a spectacular mountain range in the lower part of Africa, Lismore Estate Vineyards was born next to its nascent family. A passionate vision, combined with vines planted at 300 meters, cooled by winter snow and fed by the African summer sun, produces classic wines, with a fresh climate, rich, complex and handcrafted.
