We are emotional, because that is the only way to achieve quality.We are authentic, because we want to produce wines marked by origin.
We polarize, because you have to choose.
And we love what we do!
Lynx is ideally situated between Stellenbosch (15 minutes), Paarl (15 minutes) and Franschhoek (10 minutes) at the foothills of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains. Our boutique farm is one of the smaller wineries in the village.
We are an individually owned and operated business that does most of the winemaking by hand, giving our guests a very private experience with a variety of fascinating wines at the tasting.
Our employees not only do their job – they live with the wine and for the wine. First and foremost our cellar master Pierre, who with his team takes care of our vines every day with heart, hand and mind to achieve the optimal result. We take care of our vineyards out of conviction and with respect for nature. Because this is the prerequisite for first-class growths, from uncomplicated wines for every occasion to top-quality products with a strong character for special occasions. We have employees who identify completely with our ideas and goals and pull together with us.
With the only goal: to inspire our customers with our wines.
At our winery, our grapes are still harvested by hand. Our knowledge acquired over the years in the cellar, combined with the experience of nature, vines and wine production, allows us to produce first class wines. Our goal is to produce a selection of expressive wines that reflect both our unique terroir and the passion of our cellar master and his small team.
At Lynx, we use what is known as Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) on all of our vines. This means that all shoots are tied so that they grow vertically upward. This ensures that all leaves receive full sun in either the morning or afternoon, which is essential for the successful ripening of the grapes.
We at Lynx
have made it our task
to create wines
that will be remembered for a long time.
In our winery we still use a lot of traditional equipment, such as the open concrete tanks for fermenting the grapes, or the hand-operated basket press. The open tanks give us the unique taste of our grapes, for which we are so well known.
We also make the so-called punch downs. This involves crushing the grapes by hand at regular intervals so that we get a controlled fermentation.
We use both steel tanks and French oak barrels in our winery, with all of our red wines aging in the latter.
