notes from the producer:
Lubanzi Chenin Blanc
A wine filled with vibrancy, luminosity and clean minerality. Flavors of ripe summer melon, pear, white peach, and lemon peel on the palate. Not a drop different than the Chenin Blanc bottles Lubanzi has become known & loved for, and easier than ever before to share with family and friends alike.
Origin: Swartland, South Africa
Components: 100% Chenin Blanc
Soil/Climate: Decomposed granite & shale / dry, unirrigated bush vines
Tasting Notes: “100% Chenin Blanc drawn from a blend of older, dry farmed bush vines & younger, drip irrigated vines. Its deep straw colour points towards both ripe freshness & complexity. The nose brings tropical & stone fruits first, eliciting thoughts of tangerine & lychee. The palate is round and fleshy, purshing forward lychee again, along with white peach, apricot & green apple, all carried by a touch of elevated acidity. There is Brightness & a slight hint of freshly baked bread throughout. the finish is long, soft & affectionate.”
Lubanzi Red Blend
If there was ever a wine that was born to be packed in a backpack, carried to the top of a distant mountain & savored while admiring distant landscapes, this would be it. Cherry, earth & stone on the palate with a hint of smoke on the nose. Every bit as well made & responsibly crafted as the wine in our bottle, and made to go places others can’t. Just don’t forget when you’re out there enjoying a can, or two, that each is 1/2 of a bottle.
Origin: Coastal Region, South Africa
Components: 42% Shiraz // 34% Cinsault // 15% Mourvedre // 9% Grenache
Soil/climate: Decomposed granite & shale, mix of climate conditions
Tasting Notes: “A complex blend of five different varietals, the wine is a lush, dark ruby colour, indicating a serious, yet still vibrant wine. The nose suggests equal parts fruit, savour, & spice, eliciting thoughts of plum, liquorice & a touch of ground coffee. The palate reflects on this, showing dark fruits at first, before soon giving way to lighter red fruits, such as strawberry & raspberry, which carry to the end. it finishes with a touch of spice & raw earth. Throughout it is soft with a slight presence of tannins, which is quickly countered by an elevated acidity.”
