Swartland Wine Farm

Gorgeous Swartland Wine Farm

Lammershoek’s history

• Lammershoek literally means “lambs’ corner”, and legend has it that ewes sought shelter for their offspring when they were threatened by the black eaglelocally known as the lammervanger • The original flock of sheep at the centre of the “hiding“ legend, was owned by the first registered owner of Lammershoek, Adriaan van Jaarsveld, a Cape Colonial “free burgher” of the early 1700s • Established in 1718, the farm grew over the centuries into a proud enterprise where mixedstock farming has been replaced by specialised wine-growing as a series of owners developed the 180hectares property into a top wine farm and cellar. •

Built on the foundations and visions of local wine industry viticultural pioneers like Desiderius Pongrácz and Abraham Perold

Great terroir •
The Paardeberg Mountain surrounds are characterised by unique terroir traits which findexpression in the recognition of the area’s fruit-driven wines, with typical minerality and good acidity • Due tovery lowrainfall in the larger Swartland area, the result is low-yielding vines, which produce small, but intensely flavoured bunches with big taste • Altogether 80% of the vineyards are bush-vines of which only 10% are under irrigation • Lammershoek’s soils consist mainly of decomposed granite and are quite sandy, yielding good texture and a lingering aftertaste in the wines. The thick, dense layer of clay, which often lies metres below the surface, acts as a slow release sponge for the vines’ deeper roots during the South African summer • The soil has such special components here that every single student in Stellenbosch will learn about the “Lammershoek Terroir“

Old vines • Lammershoek has 50hectares planted vineyards • the majority being very old bush-vines, • farmed minimalistically and almost organically, virtually without any irrigation, so that the vines spread their roots deep into the precious soils. • the white cultivars include old bush-vine (non-trellised) Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier and Hárslevelü and Marsanne • the reds, Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Pinotage and Tinta Barocca • The farm is part of the wine industry’s Old Vine Project and many of the wines are certified as originating from Heritage Vineyards– some of which were planted as early as 1966

Traditional cellar with modern methods • The heart of the Lammershoek Cellar with its open fermenters for our precious red wines originates from the 1930s • Ever since the cellar was amended with a great refurbishment and addition after the take over in 2013– afully insulated cooling room and own storage was built to ensure best treatment and little movement of wines and a new working area with state of the art equipment was added • Still we are working with old oak barrels and foudres and procedures in the cellar are still dominated by manual work • Wetry tokeeptradition but still experiment with state of the art egg fermenters or clay amphoras– our latest addtion to the cellar

Lammershoek vineyards today • 17.58ha Chenin (33,8%) • 14.36ha Shiraz (27.6%) • 6.21ha Chardonnay • 5.4ha Carignan • 2.42ha Viognier • 2.24ha Mourvedre • 1.71ha Harslevelue • 1.61ha Grenache • 1.2ha Sauvignon Blanc • 0.56ha Tinta Barocca
