Lowerland, Tolbos Tannat 750ml 2018South Africa, Prieska
Their vines were planted in 1999 as a passion project for Hennie, whose Stellenbosch wine-loving roots and pioneering spirit led him to plant small blocks of cabernet, merlot, shiraz, petit verdot, tannat, viognier and colombard. Small batches of Bordeaux and Rhône style blends have been produced since 2006 in collaboration with various winemaker friends in the Cape Winelands.
The first single cultivar wines under the Lowerland label were produced in 2013. In 2015, they registered Prieska as a wine-producing region to hail a new era for wines from the Northern Cape. They are collaborating with talented, innovative winemakers to bring exciting, quality wines of origin Prieska to your glass.
Lukas van Loggerenberg, Van Loggerenberg Wines
'The wine is made by Lukas van Loggerenberg, who’s managed to tame tannat’s usually powerful tannins in a fairly soft, dry, silky package. The half-wholebunch pressing promotes the fresh, bright red fruit element, which confronts (I choose the word carefully) the riper fruitier element. I’m not entirely convinced by the wine, but I know many people perennially are.' – Tim James, Winemag.co.za
'Tantalising dark red fruit flavours followed by soft spiciness on the nose and concentrated full flavoured palate. The fine balance between tannins and fresh acidity creates a beautiful lengthy finish.' – Lukas Van Loggerenberg, Winemaker
