Wine Lammershoek, The Innocent White Blend , 2017
A delicious everyday drinking wine. A fresh wine with hints of flowers, quince, pear and zesty lemon and lime flavours. A full mouthfeel with a lingering aftertaste and crisp acidity. A perfect blend of Swartland Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Harslevelu, Chardonnay and Viognier.
White - Fresh and Aromatic.
Bright straw in colour. The bouquet is fresh crisp fruit, floral notes, rose petals and hints of spice. Fresh, fruity and crisp upfront palate with a soft and rounded mid-palate that lingers. A long lingering finish.
Enjoy this wine with seafood and fish dishes, snacks and cheeses or even a crudité for the health-conscious individual.
7 months in wood and concrete.
The grapes for this white wine cuvée were handpicked with great care and a great deal of know-how and transported to the winery in small 20kg baskets in the early hours of the morning. The grapes were initially cooled down to controlled temperatures overnight and then prepared for the fermentation process the next morning. The grape varieties fermented separately and then matured for 7 months, also separately, in French barrels, in wood foudre and in concrete tanks. When the maturation was complete, all wines were blended and bottled.
The name Lammershoek dates back more than three centuries, linked to survival or the preservation of life in a harsh, untamed environment. Meaning “lambs’ corner”, legend has it that ewes sought shelter for their small lambs in the forest alongside the farm when they felt threatened by the black eagle which abounded here – locally known as the Lammervanger, meaning “lamb catcher” in the Afrikaans language.
