2022 ‘Lua Ilse’ Single Vineyard Grenache Noir, Piekenierskloof, Lourens Family Wines

£35.00

“Now into its fourth vintage, Franco Lourens’ brilliant Piekenierskloof Grenache continues to turn heads. A quarter of the wine was fermented with stems, adding some spice to a nose of rooibos tea and rose petal. Racy and crunchy, with the zip of its 650-metre terroir, it has understated concentration, strawberry and red cherry flavours and detailed, fine-grained tannins.”

95 Points, Tim Atkin MW

“Seductive on the nose with wild strawberries, sour cherries, dried herbs and white pepper. Medium body with finely grained tannins and bright acidity. It has a purity of fruit at the center with a constant succulence and crunchiness. Ethereal and harmonious. White pepper mingling throughout and lifts the mid-palate onto the precise and long developing finish.”

95 Points, James Suckling

100% Grenache grown at 650 m on sandstone. 10 months in old neutral 500-litre barrels.

“Sweet and broad with a saline undertow. Lots of grainy substance. Interesting, well-judged wine.”

17/20 Jancis Robinson MW
