The owners of Lomond Estate Winery are pioneers. They have taken virgin, unchartered territory and boldly planted vineyards where none had been before.
Their estate is situated in Cape Agulhas, an exciting new wine producing region on the southernmost tip of Africa where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. This region is gaining a worldwide reputation for producing outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. Lomond Estate takes its name from our very own Ben Lomond Mountain, it was named by Scottish survivors of HMS Birkenhead which sank in 1852.
2008 saw Lomond receive their most prestigious award to date: the 2007 Pincushion Sauvignon Blanc was judged “Best Sauvignon Blanc in the world under £10” by Decanter World Wine Awards, beating stiff competition from New Zealand and Chile. This award has led to huge demand for the Lomond wines and raised the profile throughout the world.
Lomond Estate Sauvignon Blanc is an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh and medium bodied with ripe fig and tropical fruit flavours. Perfect with fish, duck, fresh green salads, grilled seafood or great on its' own.
