Hallgarten expands Lismore portfolio

Published:  17 January, 2019

Hallgarten & Novum Wines has expanded its line of wines from South Africa's Lismore Estate with the addition of the producer's Reserve trio.

Showcasing the estate’s premium offering from the cool-climate terroir of Greyton, the Lismore Estate Reserve range (RRP: £39.99 - £42.99) comprises Chardonnay 2017, Viognier 2017 and Syrah 2017.

Hallgarten has taken on distribution of the trio across the on- and off-trade.

“The Reserve wines from Lismore are unbelievable and we are thrilled to have them as part of our South African portfolio,” said Jim Wilson, Hallgarten & Novum Wines portfolio director.

“We have seen first-hand the development of owner and winemaker Samantha O’Keefe’s wines and the awards she receives are testament to her hard work, knowledge and winemaking skill, and the Reserve range is a culmination of years of commitment to her vineyards.”

O’Keefe said: “Having pioneered a new extreme cool-climate region in South Africa, I chose to release an Estate Reserve range to tell a very clear story of what the vineyards are capable of. The wines, from very low yielding vineyards, taste like no others grown in South Africa, which is exciting. I wanted to draw attention to the diversity that is possible in South African terroir. These barrel selections are my showcase of this very special place on earth.”

The trio will be showcased at the Hallgarten & Novum Wines annual trade tasting on 28 and 29 January.
