Lismore Estate Vineyards Chardonnay 2018

Lismore Estate Chardonnay is no ordinary white wine. This is a massively complex Chardonnay with a huge variety of flavours and aromas that ooze top quality. Lismore Estate want to produce wines of extreme quality without being shackled by price point. The aim is to produce the best wines and the price reflects the love, passion and effort that has gone into making exceptional wines. The Vineyards Chardonnay is a perfect example of this devotion. 

Samantha O'Keefe left California with dreams of starting a family and finding paradise. Tucked into the foothills of a dramatic mountain range at the bottom of Africa, Lismore Estate Vineyards was born alongside her nascent family. Passion and vision, combined with vines planted at 300 metres, chilled by winter snow and nourished by the African summer sun, produces classic, cool climate wines which are rich, complex and lovingly hand crafted.

Vineyard

The Overberg region is rapidly earning a reputation for premium, cool climate grapes. Lismore is the only registered wine estate in the Greyton ward. Greyton has now been designated a ward within that district, recognizing the unique terroir expression of the wine that is produced there. The Lismore Estate has a total of 12.5 hectares of vineyard, planted on slopes at the base of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range. The combination of elevation and climate make for an extended ripening period, which is roughly three to four weeks later than the more traditional wine growing areas in the Western Cape.

Winemaking

The grapes were whole bunched pressed, barrel fermented and aged for 11 months in older French barrels of 225 to 300 litres. The wine went through regular "bâtonnage" or stirring of the lees, which imparted texture and weight, but the wine did not go through a malolactic fermentation, leaving it with a fresh acidity.

Tasting Note

Complex, expressive bouquet with touches of smoke and walnut infusing the citrus fruit, a hint of toffee just underneath. The palate is lively and ripe on the entry with apricot, mandarin, orange zest and white peach. It is long in the mouth with a fine, walnut-inspired finish.

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.
