Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Lubanzi Chenin Blanc is drawn from a blend of older, dry farmed bush vines & younger, drip irrigated vines. Its deep straw color 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.

Tasting Panel

Creamy and lush with a nice core of bright acidity, it makes you wonder why California winemakers have all but abandoned this lovely variety.

Literally meaning "the black land," Swartland takes its name from the endangered, indigenous "renosterbos" (translating to rhino bush), which used to be plentiful enough to turn the entire landscape a dark color certain during times of year. The district, attracting some of the most adventurous and least interventionist winemakers, excels in robust and full-bodied reds as well as quality fortified wines.

Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
