Lubanzi Chenin Blanc 2016

CHENIN BLANC: 100% Chenin Blanc

Origin: swartland

Soil: Decomposed granite & shale

Alc: 12.5%

Fermentation: stainless steel tanks

For those who: Hate when their Uncle Joe tells them to "slow down on the booze" at the family reunion

TASTING NOTES

A lively green colour, with hues of pale straw is the first indication this is going to be both fresh and complex. The nose offers an intriguing array of fruits - sliced November figs, ripe nectarine and freshly-peeled satsumas (we call them naatjies!). In the background is the hint of herbaceous rosemary. The palate is round and fleshy, pushing forward ripe citrus fruits like orange, nectarine again and a fresh core of green melon. There is the hint of banana bread as well. It is moreish and beautifully balanced. But the excitement doesn’t stop there – the finish is creamy and long and fresh like watermelon sorbet. Very delicious.


RED BLEND: 46% Shiraz / 31% Cinsault / 20% Mourvedre / 3% Grenache

Origin: Coastal Region

Soil: Decomposed granite & shale

Alc: 13.5%

Fermentation: mix of oak contact & stainless steel tanks

For those who: prefer bowtie pasta to macaroni noodles

TASTING NOTES

A dark, brooding purple colour indicates this is a serious wine with impressive structure and extract. The nose is intriguing, offering huge complexity with layer upon layer of aromas – sour cherry cheesecake, freshly bruised peppermint leaf, mulberry and dark chocolate. The palate starts off echoing these aromas on the entry, but builds with more juicy black fruit. The intense black/red fruit is kept in check and balanced by an intriguing savoury note throughout the palate. Soft, but persistent, fleshy tannin and an unexpected mini-explosion of ripe, zippy blackcurrant on the finish round off an extraordinarily rewarding wine for the price.
