Lomond Pincushion Sauvignon Blanc
Spring Sauvignon Blanc Festival The Pivot Courtyard Southern Sun Montecasino
Lomond Pincushion Sauvignon Blanc, is delicate aromas of citrus, pineapple and a mix of tropical fruits, elegant palate with a fresh acidity that balances out the intense fruit flavours.
Lomond Wines was established in July 2004 as a joint venture between Distell and Lomond Properties.
Lomond, in the Gansbaai area, is situated in the valley of the Uilenkraal River and located at a most southerly latitude - 34° 34΄ south. It is one of only a handful of wine farms within the Cape Agulhas appellation of origin. Located about 8km from the sea, it is kept cool by the south-westerly and south-easterly winds during the summer months. The prevailing cool temperatures mean that vineyards ripen towards March.
Lomond is a member of both the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy and the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative (BWI), which rewards producers for sustainable wine-growing practices.
This wine is named after the pincushion protea (Leucospermum patersonii) which grows prolifically on the farm.
