Lomond Sugarbush Sauvignon Blanc

Spring Sauvignon Blanc Festival The Pivot Courtyard Southern Sun Montecasino
Lomond Sugarbush Sauvignon Blanc is Intense ripe figs, asparagus and granadilla aromas, full-bodied with an intense concentration of fruit flavours and lingering aftertaste.

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 the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy and is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative (BWI), which rewards producers for sustainable wine-growing practices.

This wine is named after the sugarbush proteas (protea obtusifolia) that grow prolifically on the farm.
