Lourensford Estate was once part of neighbouring Vergelegen, which was established by Willem Adriaan van der Stel in 1709. The Estate has a proud history as a world class fruit farm and the winemaking tradition was revived when Dr Christo Wiese purchased Lourensford in 1998.
This White Blend is the crème-de-la-crème of our white wines on Lourensford, being made up of 73% Sauvignon Blanc, with Chardonnay and Viognier making up the balance. Harvested from select sections of the best single-vineyards. It is skillfully and meticulously blended from the best barrels in the cellar to express the essence of our unique terroir. It is a beautifully crafted and sophisticated wine with lots of mystery, layered flavours and rich finesse of balanced fruit and acidity with a long, lovely finish and lingering aftertaste. Layered aromas of lemon blossoms and fresh asparagus first appear on the nose infused with nutmeg, Cape gooseberries and pear. There is a subtle aged character and each additional sip uncovers layers of exquisite flavours.
