Lukas van Loggerenberg is one of the latest additions to the club of the 'New Wave': young producers who exploit the old vines and fabulous vineyards of the Cape. His debut vintage was 2016 and he's already making a significant reputation for himself and his wines.
He makes his wines on Paarl mountain, and 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. A total Loire Valley fanatic, both Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc are close to his heart. While Lukas is inspired by the likes of Touraine, Saumur, Chinon and Vouvray, he is certainly not out to produce replicas of these wines. His aim is to create great South African wines – quality is paramount.
