2017 Lismore Reserve Viognier - 91+ PTS - WA

wa"On the nose, the 2017 Estate Reserve Viognier is slightly subdued and not as floral as the Age of Grace Viognier, but still with peach and apple blossom aromas. The palate shows a fine and focused texture and has a balanced weight across the mid-palate. The finish reveals a precision and mineral tension wrapped up with a structural elegance that I typically find in Condrieu but finishes on the leaner side. I believe that this wine will get better with time, so hold onto it for a couple more years to allow it time to bloom. - Anthony Mueller"

2018 Lismore Reserve Viognier - 95 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Very few producers in South Africa made better whites in 2018 than in 2017, but Lismore is one of them, which is a tribute to Sam O'Keefe's dedication and talent. This is broader and even richer than usual, but it's not a blowsy wine. Smooth and intensely aromatic, with citrus and apricot skin flavors and a stylish, knowing decadence. 2019-24 Greyton (13%)"

tim atkin logo 250"One of two Lismore estate Viogniers reviewed in my 2019 report, this comes from a 0.3-hectare block that was planted 13 years ago. Rich, complex and concentrated, it has pear and apricot fruit, a hint of nectarine and a patina of vanilla and cinnamon spice. 2019-23 Greyton (14%)"
