Lubanzi Chenin Blanc, Swartland, South Africa, 2018

Winemaker 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, pushing 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.”

About Lubanzi

We started in 2014, as two friends searching for an opportunity to make a difference in the world. 

In 2014, while living in South Africa as exchange students, we set off on a 20-hour bus ride along South Africa's southern coast en route to the wild coast, a remote part of the country - famously the birthplace of Nelson Mandela - for a week-long backpacking expedition. On our second day, a wandering dog the locals called ‘LUBANZI'  began following us on our adventure. He stuck with us throughout our journey - for 6 days & 100 miles - until he disappeared in the middle of the night before our final morning. There's some poetic justice in that.

In the spirit of this adventure, we moved to South Africa in 2016  endeavoring to launch a business that could help share the magnetism of a country and a people that had planted such deep roots in us and deliver some seriously top-notch wines in the process. Together, we spent months in South Africa sourcing and developing our wines; We ran the gamut looking for friends and partners who believed in the vision and wanted to be part of what we were trying to build: a young, innovative, forward-thinking, and socially responsible wine company built on the concepts of collaboration & exploration, with a ‘locally run, globally-minded' mantra. We found those partners in our winemakers, Trizanne Barnard & Bruce Jack, & our designers, Fanakalo, who became friends and collaborators, and who, throughout these years, have helped bring LUBANZI to life.
