Lazanou Organic Vineyards is situated in the picturesque Wellington valley approximately 45 minutes drive from Cape Town. Josef Lazarus and Candice Stephanou bought the farm in May 2002 when it was operating as a wholesale indigenous plant nursery. Lazanou Organic Vineyards is one of the smallest wine farms in South Africa. The full extent of the farm is 8.48 hectares, of which 5.54 hectares are under vineyards. The rest of the farm includes a cow and sheep pasture, a few small olive groves, a fruit orchard, an earth dam, a bird sanctuary, various buildings and most importantly a number of biodiversity zones.
Lazanou Estate Chenin/Chardonnay/Viognier 2016 Bio
Blend: 67% Chenin blanc, 28% Chardonnay, 5% Viognier (Wellington – altitude: 200 m – 5 ha polyculture – Winemaker: Rolanie Lotz – 5 month ageing on the lees in innox tanks)
A splash of Viognier adds alluring stone fruit and citrus blossom nuances to this Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay blend, which dances gracefully and lightly on the palate. Delightful food partner.
