Van Loggerenberg Wines, Break a Leg Blanc de Noir 750ml 2019South Africa, Stellenbosch
'Fourth vintage of this sophisticated Rose but the first use of this 27 year old Helderberg located vineyard planted on soft sandy decomposed granite just above the Craven Cinsault vineyard owned by Pieter Bredell. Three pickings make up the final wine which is fermented in old oak which removes the New World tooty fruity Rose character to expose the more grown up serious side of the wine a la Provençal Rose wines. The nose if loaded with wet slate, rain on granite, sun dried strawberries and pithy red cherry with a dusting of dried herbs. Cool, textured and quite glycerol in the mouth, this wine has lovely poise, precision and purity and a full mouthfeel more associated with higher alcohol wines…but all delivered at just over 12 Abv. A fabulous gastronomic Rose wine.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 92/100
'While previous vintages of the Break a Leg Blanc de Noir made from Cinsault by Lukas van Loggerenberg have, by all accounts, enjoyed significant commercial success, I’ve tended to find it a bit simple. The 2019, however, is a different kettle of fish. This is not about overt aromatics and flavours although there is a vague sense of blood orange both on the nose and palate. Rather, it is all about texture and energy – the fruit is pure, the acidity fresh, the finish nicely dry. It’s tightly wound, altogether less accessible than previous incarnations and consequently more serious. The best SA pink I’ve tasted in a long time.' – 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.
