Lourens Family 'Lua llse' Grenache Noir
Franco was notified that this small, bushvine vineyard had some fruit available from a friend, Xander Grier. This block is on the drive back down to the valley from the site where Franco gets a bit of Chenin for his single-vineyard bottling. This third release, named after his daughter Lua Ilse, continues to be a showstopper. It is one of the most distinguished and singular Grenaches produced in South Africa and in many ways becomes a beacon for others to seek out in terms of its elegance and moreish qualities.
