Lokaia was born from the overwhelming sense that there was more to explore in the Franschhoek Valley. While it’s no secret that Semillon, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc are at the forefront of the region’s wine identity, their bottled form still has room for growth and refinement. The ultimate goal was to extract as much personality and definition from the grapes as possible, while still maintaining each variety’s purity and brightness.
Resulting from this, are three wines with a strong focus on amphorae – Terracotta pots that allow the wines to breathe and evolve slowly, without the inclusion of oak. Each wine has a varying degree of skin contact, which creates texture and body without the typical orange discoloration that is often associated with skin contact wines.
