Lukas Van Loggerenberg rose 18
Made by Lukas Van Loggerenberg, one of South Africa's rising stars.
Just 2 barrels of this Cinsault rose exist, with the grapes coming from 30 year old vines on the bredell farm in Faure and 45 year old vines on Jacobsdal in Polkadraai.
Delicate, complex aromas - not the obvious red-fruity stuff that is becoming a cinsault cliche these days. Dry and finally textured with a cranberry grip to it, this is a serious beastie, more like southern Rhone than a classic cape rose.
