Lourens Family Wines Lindi Carien White Blend 2019
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: When does the apprentice become the master? Franco Lourens is the assistant winemaker at Alheit Family Wines in Walker Bay and another of his own label new releases is this superb red blend from fruit sourced around the Western Cape. Cinsault is already seducing journalists and consumers around the world with the likes of Sadie Family’s Pofadder, Naude Old Vine Cinsault and others.
WINE MAKING: A blend Grenache Blanche, Verdelho, Rousanne, and Chenin Blanc. A beautifully complex wine from Franco Lourens with plenty of opulence and allure. Another superbly well constructed white blend using varietals from around the Western Cape that are becoming so well suited to South African terroir.
TASTING NOTE: Alluring aromas of pear, nectarine, orange and lemon zest with hints of dried herbs and a bit of flinty reduction. The palate is dense with a creamy richness that is by no means heavy. More citrus notes emerge with wet stone in the background and leading to a mouth watering finish with fine acidity.
