Lynx Wines

Understated sophistication

Our aim is to deliver a range of expressive wines that reflect our unique terroir as well as the passion of the winemaker and his small team.

At Lynx all wines are grown, produced and bottled on the Estate. 2003 saw the maiden vintage, which immediately won acclaim when its Shiraz achieved 4½ stars in the John Platter’s Guide, and its other two wines 4 stars each. Since then the range has grown and now stands at an impressive eleven wines. The wines have continued to perform well winning numerous gold awards, being placed in the top ten Shiraz’s in South Africa, and scoring 90 points in Wine Enthusiast (USA).

Situated on the foothills of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains just outside Franschhoek, Lynx Wines is the smallest Wine Estate in the Valley producing less that 2500 cases per annum.
