Lourens Family Howard John 2019 (6x75cl)

Christian Eedes (95)

46% Grenache, 27% Cinsault and 27% Syrah, grapes sourced entirely from Swartland, the portion of Wellington Carignan that marked previous vintages no longer a feature. Approximately 80% whole-bunch fermentation. Complex aromatics of red and black fruit, rose, fynbos, olive, earth and spice. The palate has good fruit weight (despite a modest alcohol of 13%) to go with bright acidity and crunchy tannins. It’s a very measured wine – approachable without sacrificing character.

Lourens Family Howard John 2020 (6x75cl)

Christian Eedes (95)

W.O. Swartland. 44% Grenache Noir, 31% Cinsault and 25% Syrah. 80% whole-bunch fermentation. Whereas quite a few New Wave red wines sacrifice fruit depth for freshness, Lourens seems to achieve both. The nose shows top notes of lavender and fynbos before red and black berries, oliver, pepper and spice. The palate is medium bodied with fresh acidity and chalky tannins. Good fruit definition, lots of intricate flavours, the finish intensely savoury.

"I'm trying to tighten the screw each year," says Franco Lourens of this electric Chenin Blanc based white bend with 40% Verdelho and 8% Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris. Focused, layered and effortlessly concentrated with apple, pear and greengage flavours, a nip of skin tannin and neutral oak.
