Lyra Irsai Oliver Demi-Sec Sparkling Wine – Export Overruns


Tasting Notes

A wine that absolutely stuns with its individuality! A unique Demi-Sec sparkling produced from Irsai Oliver. Stunning Muscat aromas of Turkish delight and white rose petals. The palate is delicate and extremely well balanced.

Having its origin in Hungary, Irsai Oliver has found a second home in the Northern Cape. Grown in deep alluvial soils between the Orange River and Kalahari dunes, its early ripening tendency, together with expert vineyard management, allow the grapes to escape the worst of the summer heat. The vines were planted in 2010 and are only now beginning to show what they are capable of producing. The grapes for this special Demi-Sec were hand harvested in the early morning and transported to the cellar where they are immediately lightly pressed. Free run juice and fermentation at 12°C allow for the development of the undeniably moreish aromas and flavours.
