Van Loggerenberg ‘Break A Leg’ Merlot 2020

R145.00

What a wine! This is a serious little drink. Perhaps better suited to Cabernet drinkers who don’t want to spend Cabernet money. Classy stuff. Christian Eedes: “The nose shows dark berries plus subtle notes of violets and fresh herbs while the palate has good fruit density, bright acidity and a nicely dry finish (alcohol is 14% so by no means under-ripe). While so many local examples have something more or less discordant about them, this is really well judged and makes for good everyday drinking.”

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.
