Region: Cape Agulhas
Lomond Vineyards is one of very few wineries with a Cape Agulhas District appellation. Located about 8 km from the sea as the crow flies, the 800ha farm is kept cool by the south-west and south-east winds that blow during the summer months. Its extreme southerly location, proximity to the sea and varied soils with unique terroir, contribute to some distinctive single-vineyard wines that amply reflect their origins. The single vineyard wines are named after an indigenous plant found on the farm, where an initiative is underway to conserve significant tracts of natural habitat.
Brilliantly clear colour with green tinges. Whiffs of ripe fig, gooseberry, sweet tropical fruit and perfumed lavender flavours, with a hint of minerality. The combination of ripe fig and tropical fruit follow through to the palate creating a full-bodied wine and the natural high acidity with the minerality made this a well balanced wine that will mature and even get better with time.
