Press reviews:

Tim Atkin:
“Kameraderie hails from a two-hectare vineyard on a combination of granite, sandstone and clay, planted in 1960. Picked twice for complexity and balance, it combines exotic, peachy notes with taut balancing acidity and a savoury bite. Another brilliant release from my young winemaker of the year. 2019-2025.“ 95 points

Neal Martin: “The 2017 Kameraderie comes from Chenin Blanc vines planted in 1960 in Paarl that Lukas started pruning himself before the farmer granted him access to harvest the fruit. It was picked in two passes through the vineyard, the top part of the parcel 10 days later than the bottom. The fresh, vibrant bouquet presents orange blossom, vanilla pod and light yellow plum aromas that are beautifully defined. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite sappy in style and full of tension. A touch of stem ginger and lemongrass lends complexity on the finish. Excellent.” 93 points

Christian Eedes: “Grapes from a 2ha block in Paarl planted in 1960. Matured for 10 months in old oak. A haunting nose of citrus, peach, herbs and talcum powder. Once again, this wine impresses with how harmonious it is – pure fruit, coated acidity and great length. Intensely flavoured but remarkably light with no apparent gaps from entry through mid-palate to finish. “Effortless to make,” says Van Loggerenberg as testament to the high quality of the fruit, and it shows.” 96 points

Jancis Robinson (Richard Hemming): “Awesome yoghurt, lemon and peach flavours with waxy texture. Lovely mealy persistence. Long, spicy finish. Touch of toast.” 17 points
