Lighthouse Collection - The Story
Benguela Cove Wine Estate boasts the longest stretch of ocean facing vineyards (2.6km), grown at the lowest altitude (2.7m above sea level). With this unique location and optimum climate conditions, ideal viticulture, our master winemaker has created the Lighthouse Collection Wine Range.
The Lighthouse Collection range of wines was created to celebrate slopes that deliver wines with vivid fruit expression, lower acidity and softer tannins leaning more towards earlier release and enjoyment. Dedicated to the craft of allowing each wine to tell its own story, only estate-grown grapes are used to encapsulate this quintessential cool climate.
Benguela Cove has erected its own lighthouse – the beacon that historically guided ships to safety around the Cape – an ode to this marginal climate close to the ocean. Stormy winds, once a threat to ships' en route to the Cape, now cool the vines anchored in the terroir.
Lighthouse Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2019
The 2019 vintage is announced with pungent aromas of citrus and stone fruit with more delicate nuances of pear and blossom that linger on the aftertaste.
Tangy, mouth-filling and refreshing, this style takes you right to the ocean’s edge where you can smell the salt in the air. Loved by city-slickers who follow this style religiously, it embraces both an Old World minerality as well as that flamboyant fruit associated with New World styles.
Lighthouse Collection Moody Lagoon 2018 Red Blend
As this inky wine wakes up in the glass, every component in this cabernet sauvignon and syrah driven blend takes a bow. Velvety, firm tannins set the stage for a display of dark and luscious fruit, embraced with spice and hints of marzipan.
The Moody Lagoon Red Blend 2018 serves as an ode to the Bot River lagoon adjacent to the estate. Nicknamed “Moody” the lagoon is known to be unpredictable in colour and appearance.
Lighthouse Collection Syrah 2017
Confident and stylish, the wine entices with potpourri, cinnamon, pepper, hints of olive tapenade and a light perfume of sandalwood. Centre to that is a solid midpalate with a rich yet fresh display of fruit set on tightly knit tannins to deliver a long, savoury finish. Nuances of rose petals and bitter-sweet liquorice linger to add that extra bit of character.
