The Lourensford River Garden Classique Chardonnay Pinot Noir shimmers in a strikingly, beautiful rose colour in the glass. The grape variety Chardonnay (52%) gives the blend it’s fresh and crisp citrus notes with a hint of ripe pineapple, while Pinot Noir (48%) adds nuances of red fruits such as cherries and strawberries. Watermelon rose water and light notes of grapefruit skilfully round off the complex interplay of aromas. Because the blend did not mature in oak, it can unfold its freshness on the palate with the balanced acidity. The Lourensford River Garden Classique Chardonnay Pinot Noir is a crisp and fruity wine which is the perfect companion to a relaxed picnic due to its accessible character. But the Rosé is also just a pleasure to light dishes with grilled fish, salmon or chicken in lemon-thyme-sauce as well as a delicious summer salad.

Lourensford with Traces of the first Civilisation

In the area where today’s winery Lourensford is located, artefacts from the Early and Middle Stone Age had been found. The first humans had therefore lived here as early as 200.000 years ago. Some museums and exhibitions give testament to this long history. Wine cultivation on the other hand is in its early years in Lourensford. It was around 1700 when some immigrants from Europe planted vines into the nutrient soil. It used to be part of Vergelegen but when this estate was divided into four smaller farms in 1709, the place that wine lovers worldwide know as Lourensford came into being. A place that is closely associated with a constantly high quality with every new vintage.

Without doubt, Lourensford is one of the most beautiful wineries in South Africa. The grand landscape surrounding the estate captivates and excites all visitors. And not just them. National as well as international films use the unique view for their productions, amongst them some big Hollywood films.
