Press reviews:

Tim Atkin:
“The best of Lukas van Loggerenberg’s current releases, this comes from a two-hectare block planted in 1960. Beeswax, pear and apple flavours, leesy weight and pithy, mineral-edged acidity: this is quite a début.“ 94 points

The Wine Advocate: “The 2016 Kameraderie Chenin Blanc comes from vines planted in 1960 and is naturally fermented in used French oak. It has a rounded and quite sensual bouquet with lemon curd, white chocolate and almond scents, very giving and seductive. The palate is well balanced with a very refined opening, veins of lemon curd and papaya intermingling with creme brûlée towards the finish. What an excellent Chenin... just four barrels produced.” 91 points

Jancis Robinson (Richard Hemming): “Vines planted 1960s, very low yields, whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented in old oak. Intense and ripe on the nose, honeyed, spicy, creamy. Oak more evident on the palate, rich, deep and textured. More power and intensity than specific fruit flavour. Honeyed finish and just enough freshness to balance..” 17 points
