“The White Blend is the crème-de-la-crème of our white wines on Lourensford. Harvested from the very best sections of the top blocks on the farm. 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. Lemon blossoms, wild daisies and fresh asparagus aromas first appear on the nose infused with nutmeg, butterscotch, white peach and pear aromas. With every sip more and more flavours are exposed hinting towards roasted pineapple, ginger, lemongrass and rooibos and ever so slightly wild buchu, saffron, vanilla and also black truffles. There are hints of wood aged characters but no visible oak. It is a beautifully crafted and sophisticated wine with a rich finesse of balanced fruit and acid, ending in a long, lovely finish.
