Lukas Van Loggerenberg, Geronimo, Cinsault, 2020


Tasting Notes

13 %


Production has always been around 3,500-4000bts but in 2020 Lukas scaled this up. The plan was always to make a drinkable, food-friendly wine but in the past they were not able to keep it on the skins for as long as they’d like. With the new cellar all options are available and 40% whole bunch fermentation is followed by a slow, gentle press after extended skin macerations. Planted in 1968 this site is the closest to the ocean of any Cinsault blocks in Stellenbosch. Brambly, strawberry and herbal notes, with some exotic hibiscus and kombucha – the 2020 is super flattering. Rich tannins, smooth and succulent but not heavy. Fruity but with savoury, mineral substance too. WO Stellenbosch 13%.

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!
