A supple and silky wine with great fruit purity and length. 10 months in old oak lend a lovely spiciness to the the dark fruits. Beautifully perfumed. An assured and complex wine from this wizard winemaker.
100% Syrah from the grantic soils of the Polkadraai Hills.
Lukas van Loggerenberg studied at Elsenburg College. After an itinerant career as a winemaker, in South Africa, the USA and France, he took the plunge and started releasing wines under his own label in 2016. He makes his wines on Paarl mountain, but 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.
