'This expressive viognier 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. Barrel fermented and aged. Enjoy it now or allow it to gain complexity with further cellaring.' – Samantha O'Keefe, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'The 2019 The Age of Grace Viognier comes from fruit donated by friends following the terrible fire that destroyed much of the vineyard and winery. Aged in 300- and 500-liter used barrels, it has a lovely bouquet of yellow plum, yellow flowers, almond and subtle apricot aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and quite sappy on the entry, with impressive depth toward the pithy finish. This is a very fine Viognier made out of benevolence toward a winemaker in their hour of need.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100 (Apr 2021)

Producer information Lismore Estate Vineyards situated in Greyton, Overberg, was created in 2000 by Californian born Samantha O'Keefe. The location of the estate provides a combination of cool winter weather and hot African summers which produce Lismore's 'rich, complex and lovingly hand-crafted' wines. Lismore wines caught their big break in 2012 when the Lismore Chardonnay and Viognier were each given a 92 points score by Neal Marin (from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) which led to international success.
