South Africa's Fastest Rising Star

Lourens Family Wines Lindi Carien 2018

We don't want to blow our own trumpet (well too much), but we really do think we have found South Africa's most exciting young winemaker. We like Franco Lourens. We like him a lot. After several years working as an assistant to Chris Alheit in Hemelrand, Franco has emerged, seemingly fully formed, as one of the Western Cape's best winemakers. We don't remember seeing such a showstopping debut since, well, maybe Chris Alheit!


His Lindi Carien 2018 white blend (named in homage to his lovely wife) has wowed critics just as much as the 2017s, receiving a glowing 95 points from both Tim Atkin MW and Christian Eedes. The blend combines Stellenbosch Verdelho from the oldest Verdelho block in South Africa with old-vine Swartland Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Roussane and Clairette.

This is one of those great opportunities to have an 'I was there first moment' - to sample what is sure to be one of South Africa's most sought after wines before anyone else and I urge you to do so! This will also age well so worth getting some to drink now and a little to lay down for the next 2 to 5 years.
