2018 LISMORE Age of Grace 75cl (Elgin, South Africa)
Style - Rich
Grape - Viognier
Tasting - Ever found that viognier wines are bit too much? A bit heavy and heady? Well worry not with this one. There's the classic apricot and peach tones one would expect from the grape but allied to an intrinsic freshness that allows the decadent flavours to flourish without ever showing off too much. Something to do with the proximity of the vines to the coast perhaps.
FYI - Samantha O'Keefe's Lismore Estate was destroyed in the 2019 bush fires. She is currently re-building her home and her life. Buying this wine helps that project along.
ABV - 13.5%
