"This is a fantastic new find for me.” - Tim Atkin

Prieska is one of the most isolated grape-growing areas in South Africa, some 500 miles north of Cape Town, but the drums are beginning to beat a little louder and when you taste wines like this, it’s really no surprise to see some of The Cape’s top winemakers snooping around. The very fact that the grapes travel such a huge distance (this is made in Stellenbosch by Lukas van Loggerenberg), is a testament to the quality of the site. It’s a bold and opulent expression of Colombard, not the light ‘fruit cocktail’ style found in Bordeaux, showing a creamy richness, but more in the sense of crème fraiche, with a lovely bright cut of lactic acidity, as well as lemons, apricot and guava. Another great discovery from our trip to the Cape in 2018. 13% alc. Drink now-2021.
