Samantha O'Keefe is back, with a second vintage of this stunning Syrah, from her remote estate in Greyton. This is groundbreaking, pioneering Syrah. It's like France discovering a new area in the Rhône for making Hermitage. The 2014 was incredible and this is better still. Samantha O'Keefe thinks it’s the best wine she has ever made.


Press Note:

Neal Martin: "The 2015 Syrah includes 50% Elgin fruit and 50% from Samantha O'Keefe's estate, including 25% whole bunch, which is less than the 2014. It has a very sensual bouquet with dark cherries, iodine and crushed violets that blossom in the glass. There is lovely purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very precise and focused, here a mixture of red and black fruit with a hint of pain d'epices on the structured finish. This is probably Samantha's best release in 2015 and it comes highly recommended. 93 points" 'If the 2014 Lismore Syrah was noteworthy - the 2012 and 2013 were not released - then this is even better. Deeply coloured and highly perfumed, with stony, granitic, liquorice, black pepper and tapenade notes, complemented by fynbos aromas, granular tannins, subtle oak and pithy acidity. Exceptional winemaking.' Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016 ”Since her maiden vintage in 2006, along with her two sons, this estate has quietly gone about creating a cult following. Personally, I thought Lismore’s wines were top quality: crisp and focused, fresh as a spring morning with impressive complexity and style”. - Neil Martin, Wine Advocate "Light, fragrant, perfumed, really sophisticated and graceful, yet with a superb fruity quality that has enviable clarity and purity - like just-picked red bramble fruit. Excellent!" Jancis Robinson, 17.5 points
