Wine News & Reviews

2016 Lismore Reserve Chardonnay - 17.5/20 PTS - JR

jancis robinson logo"First vintage of this wine, 40% new 500-litre barrels. A new departure as she prefers neutral oak.
The oak is more evident on the nose but it actually smells seductively delicious, not at all over-oaked. On the palate, an oatmeal richness. Has that lovely clementine fragrance of Meursault and a deep but dry texture. Definitely grand cru stuffing here. Needs longer in bottle for the richness and the acidity to marry more fully. Drink 2020-2026"
- Jancis Robison, "New Wave South Africa tasting" (October 2017)

2016 Lismore Reserve Chardonnay - 93 PTS - IWR

iwinereview"Medium straw. Introduced by scents of flint, green citrus and underripe mango, the estate Chardonnay Reserve is Lismore’s icon wine. It’s mineral rich and focused with an incredibly pure, silky mouth feel and vibrant acidity. A great Chardonnay! Made with natural yeast and matured 11 months in 500L French oak, 40% new."

tim atkin logo 250"Bravo to Lismore for the quality of this first Reserve Chardonnay, all made with fruit from the farm in Greyton. This has sufficient power and concentration to cope with the 40% new wood, supported by acidity and real focus. Sappy, structured and intense, with classic, quasi-Burgundian notes of struck match. 2018-23. - Tim Atkin"
