“This White Blend is the crème-de-la-crème of our white wines on Lourensford. Harvested from select sections of the best single-vineyards. It is skillfully and meticulously blended from the best barrels in the cellar to express the essence of our unique terroir.”
The wine is layered with fragrant aromas and exotic flavours. Asparagus and green fig aromas first appear on the nose infused with spices of clove and hints of cinnamon followed by butterscotch, white peach and pear aromas. With every sip more and more flavours are exposed hinting towards roasted pineapple, lemongrass and rooibos and ever so slightly wild buchu, saffron, ginger and also black truffles. There are hints of wood aged characters but no visible oak. It is a beautifully crafted and sophisticated wine with lots of mystery, layered flavours and rich finesse of balanced fruit and acidity with a long, lovely finish and lingering aftertaste. For best results this wine should be decanted 30 minutes – 1 hour before consumption. Serve this wine between 12 – 14C for best results.
