Description

W.O. Swartland. 44% Grenache Noir, 31% Cinsault and 25% Syrah. 80% whole-bunch fermentation. Whereas quite a few New Wave red wines sacrifice fruit depth for freshness, Lourens seems to achieve both. The nose shows top notes of lavender and fynbos before red and black berries, oliver, pepper and spice. The palate is medium bodied with fresh acidity and chalky tannins. Good fruit definition, lots of intricate flavours, the finish intensely savoury. 95/100 Winemag.co.za – Christian Eedes

Producer Information: Lourens Family Wines

Franco is the assistant winemaker for Chris Alheit and the wines he makes from Chris’s cellar in Hemel-en-Aarde follow a similar path of old-vine complexity and masterly finesse. From his two single-vineyard Steens (Chenin Blancs) to his Rhone red and white blends these are impressive bottlings by any standard. Another New Wave SA star!
