In the vineyards
The wine is made from the second oldest registered red wine vineyard in the country, planted in 1932 by Koos Lötter on his farm in Franschhoek. These old bush vines are dryland farmed and produce really exceptional fruit. The soils are decomposed granite with underlying sandstone, which gives this wine its elegance and finesse. This vineyard ripens very late and due to the really cool weather we had during the 2021 harvest, the fruit took even longer to ripen fully. These were the last grapes to come into the cellar for the year.

In the cellar
The grapes were 100% destemmed before crushing. All grapes were left to ferment naturally with one punch down performed daily. The wines underwent malolactic fermentation in concrete diamond cube. The wine was racked once after malolactic fermentation and returned to the concrete cube for 10 months before bottling. No enzymes or commercial yeasts were used in making the wines.

Christian Eedes: Plums, cherries, hints of earth and modeling clay (plasticene). The palate shows good fruit density – it has a roundness about it without being weighty – while the acidity is bright and the tannins very fine. 93/100.

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.
