Lukas Van Loggerenberg

Van Loggerenberg

Two new wines join the range in Lukas van Loggerenberg’s second vintage since his ‘great leap of faith’ in going solo: a chenin blending grapes from different areas and a syrah-cinsaut from Stellenbosch. Quantities are also up – though still very small. Also new is Thomas, Lukas and Roxanne’s first child, who was born during the early days of harvest 2018 – compensating for the drought-stricken Kameraderie dryland vineyard in Paarl. The wines are still made in the simple shed atop a Devon Valley hill (where he also crafts the Carinus Family wines in exchange for the hospitality) – but such ‘very basic’ conditions are fine for the rigorously non-interventionist approach behind these fresh, elegant wines.
