Lanzerac is steeped in history, having been established in 1692 – a mere 13 years after Stellenbosch itself and is the third oldest farm in the area. The first owner was Isaac Schrijver who planted the very first vineyards and, unsurprisingly, named the farm Schoongezicht, meaning wonderful view. In the early 1800’s the first cellar was erected.
One of the property’s most influential owners was Elizabeth Catherina ‘Kitty’ English, who bought Schoongezicht in 1920. Mrs English changed the estate’s name to Lanzerac, rumoured to be after General Charles Lanrezac – a French General, who commanded the French Fifth Army at the outbreak of World War I.
The estate has been making fine wine throughout it’s history, and their range of premium-yet-not-expensive Stellenbosch wines are definitely among the VK’s favourites.
This classic Cabernet shows inviting flavours of blackberry and youngberry with hints of cocoa, almond and cedar. A full-bodied wine with excellent balance on the palate and a smooth lingering aftertaste. The wine can be enjoyed now, but will benefit with a further 5-8 years of maturation.
