Supple, rounded and elegant, but with lots of flavour. Sweet cherries, olives and pepper. Juicy and lively with a nice damson twist on the finish. The palate is pure and fresh with fine tannins and has a lovely energy about it. The finish, meanwhile, is long and gently savoury. Lip-smacking stuff.

  • Delivery Information

A vinification process that involves indigenous yeasts, very light filtration and omits fining. The results are a spectacular selection of wines that we believe re-affirm Franco’s commitment to his key mantra that wines need to be interesting.

We are delighted to be able to introduce you to this range from a young winemaker who is very quickly establishing himself at the forefront of the South Africa scene. Franco Lourens has served his apprenticeship as assistant winemaker to the highly-regarded Chris Alheit while simultaneously establishing his Lourens Family Wines project. From his base in Hermanus, he works with a series of growers to source the best fruit from sites of unique interest
