Description

History

Lovane, located in Stellenbosch, is the smallest commercial wine estate in South Africa. Established in 2003, our first wines were bottled in 2006. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Our estate wines are made in the old traditional style – all grapes are picked and sorted by hand. The farm is owned by the Visser family, Theresa, Hennie and their twin daughters Andrea and Natalie. Our wine is made with curiosity, passion and love.

Maturation Potential

The wine is ready to drink now, but will mature well for a further 5 years.

The Winemaking

The grapes were harvested during March. After destalking and crushing, the grapes remained on the skins for 24 hours.  The must was fermented in rotation tanks, and completed in wooden barrels.  After malolactic fermentation the wine was further matured in mainly French Oak barrels.
