Lammershoek

The name Lammershoek dates back more than three centuries, linked to survival or the preservation of life in a harsh, untamed environment. Meaning “lambs’ corner”, legend has it that ewes sought shelter for their small lambs in the forest alongside the farm when they felt threatened by the black eagle which abounded here, locally known as the Lammervanger, meaning “lamb catcher” in the Afrikaans language.

And here in this sheltering valley of the Paardeberg Mountain in the Swartland district, a stone’s throw from Cape Town’s famous Table Mountain, Lammershoek’s farming legacy is perpetuated in the seasonal pulse of nature and its ever-renewing life. In the vibrant new vineyard shoots of spring, in green landscapes framed by rocky mountain outcrops, in new harvests and new characteristics and qualities, also in new wines, styles and wine ranges, names and labels.

Yes, Lammershoek is indeed showing new life and vibrancy, driven by new role players, new ownership, directions, creativity and broadening horizons which will leave its fresh footprint in both the South African domestic and the export markets, especially Europe where its powerful shareholders are based.

The farm, in the Aprilskloof valley which is still a largely undiscovered gem of scenic beauty and individualistic wine production, was acquired in 2013 by a trio of well-known German businessmen and sporting executives. The majority investor is legendary soccer star Franz Beckenbauer, with communications specialist Andreas Abold and sport promotor Fedor Radmann.

They specifically selected this unique piece of land in a still unspoiled environment, which reflects their belief that joie de vivre and pleasure can be reconciled with personal responsibility and the nuances of nature.

Lammershoek The Innocent Syrah

A beautiful wine with aromas of dark chocolate, red berry fruit and hints of savoury undertones. The palate is elegant with a silky texture balanced with lovely natural acidity. The finish is long and refreshing.

  • Colour: Dark red centre with a bright red edge.
  • Nose: Dark chocolate, plums, cassis and spices.
  • Palate: Soft and round upfront mouth feel, good mid palate texture with ripe and refined tannins that lingers on.
