Description

This is a special release from Samantha O’Keefe of Lismore Estate – A brand new Chenin Blanc 2020 which was the result of the amazing support she received from the SA wine industry following the devastating fire at her winery in 2019. For the first time she has made a 100% Chenin Blanc and as with everything she makes the wine is amazing. The fruit comes from Stanford in Walker Bay, and has about 10% skin ferment, all naturally fermented and barrel aged with 20-25% new 500 litre barrels for 11 months. It is a beautiful expression of cool climate chenin

The 2020 Chenin Blanc has a detailed, finely delineated nose, delicate touches of orange blossom and jasmine emerging with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced, taut and linear, with fine acidity – almost crystalline. Discreet touches of mandarin and passion fruit develop toward the racy finish. Understated and classy. 93 pts – Neal Martin (Vinous.com)
