Lomond reds clinch medals at North America’s largest wine competition
Two Lomond single vineyard 2006 Syrahs, Lomond Cat’s Tail and Lomond Conebush, excelled at the 2008 Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada, the largest International wine competition in North America, held in Quebec City. In its 15th year, the competition attracted over 2 000 entries from 30 wine producing countries. Both Lomond reds were awarded silver medals.
Home to as many as 18 different soil forms at diverse altitudes, Lomond offers a wide spectrum of growing conditions that make for an intriguing complexity in the profile of its wines. Situated near Gansbaai, Lomond is one of a handful of wine farms with a Cape Agulhas appellation of origin.
The Lomond Conebush Syrah 2006 is a beautifully integrated and elegant wine with soft tannins teeming with subtle berry flavours and notes of white pepper and oak spice.
The Lomond Cat’s Tail Syrah 2006 is full-bodied and rich with elegant, subtle tannins and ample berry and plum to offset the classic white pepper and oak spices.
