Lukas makes his wines on Paarl mountain, and sources most of his fruit from Stellenbosch with important parcels coming from Paarl and Swartland. There is a luxuriousness and generosity to Lukas’ wines, but certainly not at the expense of balance or finesse. A total Loire Valley tragic, both Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc are close to his heart. While Lukas is inspired by the likes of Touraine, Saumur, Chinon and Vouvray, he is certainly not out to produce replicas of these wines. His aim is to create great South African wines – quality is paramount.
Van Loggerenberg “Breton” Cabernet Franc 2021
“Archetypal aromatics of red and black berries, pencil shavings, rose violets and some herbaceousness – very expressive and attractive. The palate has good fruit density (more so than usual although it’s hardly what you would call “plush”) and the acidity is well integrated, the tannins fine-grained. Poise, verve and length. 95/100” – Christian Eedes
