Lourens Family Wines

We are delighted to be able to introduce you to this range from a young winemaker who is very quickly establishing himself at the forefront of the South Africa scene.
Franco Lourens has served his apprenticeship as assistant winemaker to the highly-regarded Chris Alheit while simultaneously establishing his Lourens Family Wines project. From his base in Hermanus, he works with a series of growers to source the best fruit from sites of unique interest before a vinification process that involves indigenous yeasts, very light filtration and omits fining. The results are a spectacular selection of wines that we believe re-affirm Franco’s commitment to his key mantra – “Wines need to be interesting!” We certainly agree!

Bloukip Steen 2019

This 100% Steen, also known as Chenin Blanc, is produced from a single vineyard in Durbanville. Originally planted on shale soils in 1977, it consists of a plot of dry bush wines located only 10 kilometres from the Atlantic Ocean. Unlike this other wines which often draw fruit from multiple sites, Franco wanted to bottle this wine to showcase the true terroirs of this unique soil structure. The wine itself is packed with stone fruit and orange character, as well dried herbs, ginger and a slight waxy note. It is rich and round on the palate with nicely integrated acidity and a gently savoury finish.
