Lukas van Loggerenberg 'Break a Leg' Rosé, South Africa 2017

17.95

The 'Break a Leg' rosé is made from Cinsault and represents just two barrels of juice sourced from the same vineyard blocks at the Geronimo Cinsault. It’s a serious, finely-textured wine, one of only a few such South African dry rosés. It might appear expensive for a Cape rosé, but maybe not when compared to the ambitious southern Rhône versions. Our tasting impressions: “Gorgeous, ripe, round, some barrel-influence, but not annoying spice, just textural softness. Very vinous (by which we mean it tastes like ‘wine’ as opposed to fruit juice).”


Press review:

Neal Martin: “The 2017 Break a Leg Blanc de Noir comes from 32-year-old Cinsault vines, picked in two passes through the vineyard and fermented for eight months in used French oak. It has a light orange blossom-scented bouquet. The palate is well balanced, with mandarin and orange pith notes, and slightly waxy in texture toward the harmonious finish. Fine.” 88 points
