Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Lukas Van Loggerenberg, Break a Leg, Chardonnay, 2022

An unoaked Chardonnay which is 50% from the Polkadraai Hills (Blue Gum Grove – Granite soils) and 50% Devon Valley (Clay soils). Vinified and raised in two separate stainless steel tanks, bottled after six months. Clear and pretty, there is a bit more fruit to the 2022 and less reduction, gentle and easy going with a crisp feel, unusual for Chardonnay in this region. 13% ABV.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2022 Chardonnay Break A Leg is realized in stainless steel. It has a saline, almost Chablis-like bouquet with impressive focus. The palate is well-balanced with a slightly leesy entry. It’s very pure with light grip with a slightly peachy and honeyed finish. Understated, elegant and something to drink over the next 2-4 years.

Lukas Van Loggerenberg

Well, the cat is out of the bag, and Lukas Van Loggerenberg is now well-known as one of the Cape’s hottest tickets. He does not own any vineyards but has charmed his way into some prime sites across Stellenbosch, Swartland and Paarl. Combining magical old vineyards that, in Lukas’ words, “give a real nervous energy” with a love for the cool climate regions of Europe; particularly the Loire Valley, it is not surprising that his young wines are some of the most electrifying in South Africa today. As a lover of acidity and lower alcohol levels Lukas is an early picker. Although based in Stellenbosch, “my harvest starts at the same time as the guys in the Swartland. But it goes way on! I like to blend different pickings and if the conditions are good then I leave a little bit to really benefit from extended hang time”. Lukas is perhaps most famous for his two dazzling Chenin Blancs; Kamaraderie and Trust Your Gut, and Breton – a fabulous Loire Valley inspired Cabernet Franc. Kamaraderie is a two hectare vineyard in Paarl planted in the 1960s, while Trust Your Gut is a blend of Stellenbosch, Swartland and Paarl fruit. He also works with Cinsault and Syrah and, unsurprisingly, these are some of the most refined examples around. And don’t miss his pale, Provence-style Rose!
