In the vineyards
The Syrah vineyard is planted on a southern slope with highly granitic soils on the Karibib farm in the Polkadraai hills.

In the cellar
The fruit was 100% whole bunch naturally fermented with one punch down performed daily. After pressing, the wine was transferred to barrels where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The barrels were blended after 10 months and bottled right after. No enzymes or commercial yeasts were used in making the wines.

Christian Eedes: Truly beautiful aromatics including St Joseph’s lilies, red and black berries, fynbos, earth, pepper and clove while the palate shows great clarity of fruit, punchy acidity and fine tannins. A statuesque wine – muscular but not bulky. Great flavour intensity, harmonious and super-long on the finish. 98/100.

Out of stock

Lukas van Loggerenberg makes his wines on Paarl mountain, and sources most of his fruit from Stellenbosch with important parcels coming from Swartland and a new (old) vineyard in Franschhoek.

There is a luxuriousness and generosity to Lukas’ wines, but certainly not at the expense of balance or finesse.

His aim is to create great South African wines – quality is paramount.
