Van Loggerenberg Wines, Kameraderie Chenin Blanc 750ml 2019South Africa, Paarl
'From an old vine Chenin Blanc vineyard planted in 1960 that yielded a meagre 1200 bottles in 2019 thanks to the drought, baboons and the age of the vines. The vineyard delivers incredible concentration with an almost Champagne-like pH of 3.2. This shows similar characters to the Trust Your Gut but with an even more pronounced crush granite minerality, slate dust and sweet grilled herbs intermixed with pithy yellow orchard fruits, green pistachio and piquant crunchy pineapple pastille with great salinity. A super serious Chenin expression that is maybe showing more of its austere Loire’ish DNA at the moment. Drop dead gorgeous and also age worthy.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 96/100
'From a Paarl vineyard of Chenin Blanc planted in 1960. Pear, white peach and lemon plus a hint of reduction as well as dried herbs and some talcum-powder dustiness in the background. Great fruit purity, punchy acidity and a pithy finish – just so energetic and balanced. Tightly wound, this is a good few years off drinking at its best.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 95/100
Alc: 13% | TA: 6.4 g/L | PH: 3.28
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.
