The Lourensford Chardonnay inspires the gourmet with a fresh bouquet of orange blossoms and lime, underlined by a hint of melon and pineapple. A beautiful toffee note and buttery undertones rounds off the first impression in the nose. On the palate, a true firework of tropical fruit aromas reveals and peaks in a very well integrated finish. Subtle oak notes support the bright acidity of the white wine that matured partly in French oak and contribute to the excellent balance of the Lourensford Chardonnay. We recommend serving the wine with rich dishes such as pasta, poultry or fish in a creamy sauce. A mild Indian curry goes as well to the white wine as salmon or smoked haddock.

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. This exciting environment makes for a cosy atmosphere amongst staff and visitors of the yard which invites to lean back - but also to enjoy fantastic high class wines that can be tasted in a relaxed and stylishly furnished Tasting Room.

Elegance and full-bodied Complexity

Classic elegance just like the noble bottles from Europe joins a strong richness and a full-bodied complexity that define the wine from South Africa. Three different Ranges ensure that there is the right product for almost every taste and demand. Wine novices that are ready to dive into the fascinating world of premium wines, but also experienced connoisseurs will surely find a wonderful wine they like at Lourensford.
