'The 2017 Syrah continues to serve as one of the Cape's finest expressions of the variety. Gorgeous scents of raspberry, strawberry, Earl Grey tea and pomegranate seeds feature on the detailed nose; then the palate is lithe and silky, with perhaps more garrigue notes coming through with bottle age. Divine. Drink 2022-2045.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 95/100 (Apr 2021)

'A combination of Elign and Greyton grapes. 40% wholebunch fermentation. Red and black fruit, pepper and some reduction on the nose. Full and relatively luscious in the mouth with fine tannins. Alcohol: 14%.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 90/100

'Sweet red fruit, juicy and pert with soft tannin and a little earthy note on the finish with lovely snappy tannin. Superb quality with dignified, classic balance.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

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.
