The Lourensford Cabernet Sauvignon impresses with a complex bouquet of fruity, floral and vegetable notes: Nuances of ripe blackcurrants, violets and tea leaves rise into the gourmet’s nose, accompanied by a hint of cedar wood. These aromas reoccur on the palate, notes of blackberries and mulberries also come along. The tannins are powerful, yet soft and smooth and give the red wine that matured in French oak for 17 months a great structure before it ends with a lingering finish. The Lourensford Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful companion to game yet dark meat - that has maybe even been on the barbecue - also goes very well with this powerful red wine. Try the Lourensford Cabernet Sauvignon with sweeter sauces, for example cranberries, and poignant dishes.

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.

History and Modernity

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. The impressive interplay of Lourensford’s rich history, manifested in the beautiful architecture, with the state-of-the-art technology in the wine cellar is also movie material.
