Collectie: Franco Lourens Family Wines

All the wines are produced in an environmentally friendly manner

 

Franco is one of the bright lights of the Cape’s winemaking scene and we can't wait to let you guys in on some of his wines! 

Franco is the assistant winemaker for Chris Alheit – a (or in our view, the) leading light of South Africa’s New Wave and champion of old-vine Chenin, among others. From Chris’ cellar in Hemel-en-Aarde, Franco has made some serious wines. I mean, these are impressive bottlings by any standard – powerful, concentrated, yet supremely elegant and finely detailed. Has the student become the master?

We have two phenomenal wines from Franco. A Swartland red blend made from Mediterranean varieties which is every bit as pellucidly profound as the best terroir reds you’ll find in this region. And a stunning white blend based on the oldest block of Verdelho planted in South Africa, including some skin-macerated Grenache Blanc, and Clairette and Roussanne aged in amphorae.

This is a breathtakingly self-assured range and almost in the blink of an eye places Franco into the very top bracket of top-end New Wave SA producers.
