Lourens Family ‘Lindi Carien’ 2022


“52% Chenin Blanc, 27% Verdelho, 13% Colombar, 5% Grenache Blanc (five days skin contact) and 3% Palomino sourced variously from Piekenierskloof, Stellenbosch and Voor-Paardeberg. Matured for 10 months in old 300- and 500-litre barrels. Some floral perfume before stone fruit, orange, spice and a little waxy character on the nose while the palate has good fruit weight, moderate acidity and a gently savoury finish. A wine with a subtle oxidative quality, nicely tangy with a little bit of phenolic grip. Alc: 13%.
– Christian Eedes, Winemag

Franco Lourens is based in Paarl and makes his wines in the same cellar as Lukas van Loggerenberg. Previously he was Chris Alheit’s assistant.

He sources fruit from Stellenbosch, Swartland, and in particular Piekenierskloof for his wines.

“Poenie”, as he more widely known, is one of the industry’s ‘Nice Guys’. He always has a smile on his face and is never too far from a laugh and a joke.

Make no mistake though, when it comes to wine, Poenie is totally quality-obsessed. While this means that the wines are superb (see below), it also means that the quantities can be frustratingly small.
