2016 Lismore Estate Pinot Noir

In the Lismore Estate Pinot Noir, winegrower Samantha O`Keefe has fashioned something akin to the delicate nd juicy Chambolles of Francois Berthaut. I can`t think of a more apt comparison, nor higher praise. This delicate, fruity Pinot has Samantha`s hallmark elegance as well as considerable drive. The fresh redcurrant and red cherry fruit flavours are well supported by fine acidity and finer tannins to make a great accompaniment to summer fish and lighter meat dishes. (CW 02/06/17)

First vintage, bought-in fruit. 50% coastal from Walker Bay and 50% from high up in Kaaimansgaat. Neutral oak. Light cherry red. Fragrant and juicy and totally enchanting. Seductive in its soft, sweet-fruited freshness. Intense and lingering pleasure. Should age well but I would be tempted to drink it young. 17 points

Like the Reserve Chardonnay, this is a new wine for Lismore, seeing Sam O’Keefe step boldly into the Cape Pinot Noir market. Blending fruit from Walker Bay and Elandskloof, it’s a bright, tangy, aromatic expression of the grape at the more elegant end of the spectrum, with cherry stone and raspberry fruit. Promising stuff. Drink 2018-23. 93 points
