Lismore Estate Age of Grace Viognier 2019

The Lismore Estate Age of Grace Viognier is expressive white wine which seduces you with the beautiful perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple. A sensual and exotic experience.

 

Producer Note - Californian Samantha O'Keefe has found paradise and the perfect terroir. Tucked into the foothills of a dramatic mountain range at the bottom of Africa, Lismore Estate Vineyards was born alongside her nascent family. A passionate vision, combined with vines planted at 300 metres, which are chilled by winter snow and nourished by the African summer sun, produces classic, cool climate wines which are rich, complex and lovingly hand-crafted.

 

Vintage - A mild winter brought heavy rains, helping to offset the years of drought seen in recent years. Warm conditions led to early budbreak, however a cold snap meant it was uneven, leading to reduced yields. The conditions in spring oscillated between cold and warm temperatures, combined with windy conditions, which led to risk of disease pressure in some vineyards. Early summer was warm and steady, with hot spells which enabled the vines to develop. Regular, light rain showers and relatively cool day and night temperatures were common during the pre-harvest period. January to the end of March was cooler than usual, with the exception of a few moderate to warm days during February. Good ripening conditions resulted in high sugar and acidity levels bringing about excellent wine quality for the 2019 vintage.

 

Winemaking - The grapes were picked and whole bunch pressed, slowly extracting the juice at a rate of 550 litres per tonne. The juice was settled for 48 hours and then racked into a combination of seasoned 225 litre Burgundian barrels, where it was matured for 10 months. 10% of the production was fermented and matured in a 600 litre egg- shaped tank, retaining the purity of fruit. Balance is the key to this wine. Viognier is an aromatic and generous varietal, it benefitted from the barrel maturation and lees contact creating a fuller mouth-feel and increased texture, which is beautifully balanced by the firm backbone of acidity.

 

Tasting Note - The Lismore Estate Age of Grace Viognier ia an expressive, barrel-fermented Viognier which seduces you with the beautiful perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple. A sensual and exotic experience.

The technical information on this wine is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of publication. This information may be subject to change according to vintage

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
