'Grapes from a 1974 vineyard in Faure, Stellenbosch. 40% whole-bunch fermentation. Subtle and ethereal aromatics – initially pretty notes of rose, herbs, red currant, raspberry, and plums but darker berries, olive, and spice come to the fore with time in the glass. The palate has pure fruit, invigorating acidity, and fine yet grippy tannins. Great structure – neither too frivolous nor too brutish. Very well-judged.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

Winemaker's notes on the label:
When I was a youngster growing up in Rawsonville myself and a few friends would hike up the mountain to a swimming spot that we discovered, to reach this spot/pool, we had to jump of a 5m cliff. When it was my turn to jump, hesitation would creep in and taking that leap seemed impossible. With my friend cheering me on and reminding me that I can do it, I would take a deep breath and take that leap of faith. That few seconds in the air is indescribable! Shouting GERONIMO out of the top of your lungs. For a few seconds in the air you feel like a bird just soaring in the sky. This wine/label reminds us of the big leap of faith we took starting this big venture of ours, with friends cheering and helping us, and making us realize that we can do it. This is also symbolized by the boy jumping off a cliff in the top left-hand corner of the label. The label also shows a piece of our South African heritage in the form of the postage stamp depicting the South African national fish, the Galjoen.

The 2019 vintage is the fourth release for Lukas – a rising star, Young Gun and 2018 Young Winemaker of the Year by Tim Atkin. Lukas grew up in Rawsonville in the Breederivier valley, and was always surrounded by vineyards and wine. His wines are produced in the Devon Valley and the grapes are sourced from Stellenbosch, Paarl and Swartland. Each wine and it’s name has a specific story behind it and his wines have become extremely sought-after. ‘Pretty damn hot,’ says Christian Eedes raving about his previous releases.
