Van Loggerenberg Break-a-leg Blanc de Noir 2018

R136.50 / bottle

As the name suggests, winemaker Lukas underwent two big knee surgeries in our first harvest season as is shown by the leg in a brace on the label and the silhouette of the man plotting his next move. With the help of great friends and family it all came together and this wine is a celebration of hard times that you have to overcome.  In the same way one wishes a performer to “break a leg” the name celebrates all the hard work we put in to achieve our goals.

The protea on the stamp emphasizes our South African heritage while the tortoise symbolizes the speed at which Lukas was able to work during that first harvest.  The donkey shown is a tongue in cheek reminder of how stubborn Lukas was in not compromising on doing any of the work himself despite not being as mobile as he would have liked.

100% Cinsaut

W.O, Paarl

IN THE VINEYARDS

Grapes are from a 32 year old vineyard planted in clay rich granite soils in the Daljosafat area of Paarl. This vineyard was specifically selected for this wine as the rich soils give the wine great depth on the mid-pallet.

IN THE CELLAR

All grapes were de-stemmed and lightly pressed to extract juice and a light colour without extracting too much tannin.  Juice was left overnight to settle in a stainless steel tank without any settling enzymes.   Settled juice then transferred to old French oak barrels to ferment naturally and also avoid the usual sweet flavours associated with blanc de noirs. The wine went through Malolactic fermentation which also adds complexity to the wine. The wine spent 8 months in barrel before bottling.  No enzymes or commercial yeast was used in making the wines.

FOOD PAIRING

Ideal for lunches, freshly caught fish, with a fresh garden salad. For a starter, fresh West Coast Oysters with pomegranate seeds
