Region: Cape Agulhas
Lomond Vineyards, located 34° 34′ south, near Gansbaai, 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 very distinctive single-vineyard wines that amply reflect their origins. Each of the vineyards is named after an indigenous plant found on the farm, where an initiative is underway to conserve significant tracts of natural habitat.
The colour is brilliantly clear with green tinges. The palate is herbacious with nettle and mineral tones followed by a subtle gooseberry bouquet. Crisp and clean with vibrant acidity and a fruity finish.
