This farm of mine and all of South Africa has had such a great week. Neal Martin released his South Africa report on Vinous. He wrote of the South African wines he tasted, "Even as a fairly seasoned taster, at some point, I sat back and marveled at the astonishing quality." I am proud that Lismore did particularly well.

"Samantha O'Keefe of Lismore Estate is a trailblazer who is making some of South Africa's most focused, precise and thoughtful wines. If you are not familiar with Samantha or her wines, you need to seek some out and try them for yourself. South African wine may hold negative connotations in some people's minds, so I hope they try Samantha's wines, as every bottling from her range displayed elegance and beauty. Lismore wines are expressive with layers of complexity that shine and an honesty that over delivers for the price. I am anxious to see what she does next. Be on the lookout for an article on food and wine pairings with Lismore wines in 2020 and keep your eyes peeled on Lismore Estate wines for some truly great winemaking!" - Anthony Mueller
