'The name Breton is from the old French name in the Loire for Cabernet Franc. We chose this name as it was in the Loire valley that we made the final decision to start Van Loggerenberg Wines.' – Lukas Van Loggerenberg

Tasting notes:
'A blend of 3 vineyards all planted on granitic soils in the Polkadraai. Two out of three of the vineyards are whole bunch fermented adding to the aromatic spice and herbaceousness before being aged 10-11 months in old oak. The vintage has the classical wet gravel nose with all the archetypal notes of true Cabernet Franc. Plenty of plushness and weightless density with the lower yields but also shows lovely cedar and lead pencil sappy spice, graphite and a herby hedgerow perfume. Herbaceousness is in the DNA of Cabernet Franc and when cultivated correctly, can offer plushness of black fruit intensity together with the herby graphite lead pencil notes that set this variety apart. Lukas manages capture the classism without feeling forced or prickly. The texture and purity is super impressive and the plush creamy concentration mouth filling and expansive. This is benchmark classical Cabernet Franc and sits among the finest expressions produced in SA.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 94/100

'From three parcels of Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc. 50% whole-bunch fermentation. Very fragrant with notes of red fruit, violets and pronounced herbal note. The palate is lean and fresh with very fine tannins, the finish possessing a slightly salty quality. As ever, this is a particular and slightly severe expression of the variety. Drinking it with food, however, the wine has a winning coolness about it.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 91/100

About Van Loggerenberg Wines:
Van Loggerenberg Wines was started by Lukas and wife Roxanne with their first vintage in 2016. 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.
