Wine News & Reviews

2012 Lismore Chardonnay - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"The 2012 Chardonnay has a well-behaved, almost conservative nose that focuses upon delineation and focus and only with aeration reveals attractive citrus peel, bay leaf and lime aromas. The palate has a dab of spice on the entry, crisp acidity and impressive weight in the mouth, yet without losing intensity and precision. This is another excellent wine from one of South Africa's rising stars, Samantha O'Keefe. - Neal Martin"

2013 Lismore Chardonnay - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Very pale yellow. Smoky, slightly herbaceous aromas of grapefruit peel, clove and honey. Rich, spicy and broad on the palate, conveying noteworthy depth and energy to the flavors of peach, brown spices and salty minerals. Finishes with impressive breadth and dusty persistence. A dense but brisk cool-climate style of Chardonnay with a light touch. Greyton is located in the Southern Cape region, northeast of Hermanus and inland. - Stephen Tanzer"

2013 Lismore Chardonnay - 91+ PTS - WA

wa91"From shale soils over clay with no new barrel and 15-20% malolactic, the 2013 Chardonnay has a nose that positively strides out of the glass with pineapple, guava and bioche aromas that hold nothing back. The palate is well balanced with touches of stem ginger and orange zest, demonstrating very good depth with a structured, almost terse finish that will need 3-4 years to mellow. Very good potential here and yet another wonderful Chardonnay from Samantha O'Keefe. - Neal Martin"

2014 Lismore Chardonnay - 88 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 88 pts"There's a pleasant fruity richness to this wine, with pronounced aromas and flavors of peach, pear and guava that are hit by notes of toast and baking spice. It's generous on the palate and full in feel, with a welcome acidic lift on the close. Drink now."

2014 Lismore Chardonnay - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Bright straw-yellow. Exotic orange blossom perfume along with honeyed oak on the extravagant nose. A sexy floral sweetness is nicely buffered by ripe, harmonious acidity and a firming touch of minerality. A rather plush, glyceral style but its building acidity and savory quality counter the leesy richness, giving the wine a surprisingly firm finish. And a bit more intense and firm than the Viognier. A rather fat New World style of Chardonnay, almost California-like, but with an edge of acidity and minerality. - Stephen Tanzer"

2014 Lismore Chardonnay - 92 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"It’s tempting to see something of a California style in this wine because of the origins of its winemaker, Sam O’Keefe. It’s a rich, honeyed, peachy style with impressive concentration, savoury oak and enough acidity to keep the wine fresh and focused on the palate. Drink: 2016-19"
