Winery of the Week: Lord 's Wines

At 500m in the mountains above McGregor, boutique domaine Lord’s is one of the highest and coolest in Robertson Valley and thus suited to pinot noir and chardonnay, utilised for both still and sparkling wines. Also in the purview of co-owner/viticulturist Jacie Oosthuizen and the team is rare white grape nouvelle, aromatising the Sauvignon and starring solo in the Nectar dessert.

Delicious peanut brittle & butterscotch breadth to 2013, even less new oak (20%) means less overt, more drinkable. Wine tasted by Dave Swingler More »
