PRODUCER: Born in Cape Town as the brainchild of two young travelers, Charlie & Walker, on the hunt for adventure and an opportunity to make a difference in the world. Lubanzi is a collaborative enterprise - one with a story of community, of partnerships, and of the path less travelled.
Lubanzi believe that people are every bit as important as the product. They are proud to be a Fair For Life Fair Trade Certified© & B Corp Certified business. Lubanzi is built as a social enterprise, and have pledged 50% of their net profits to back the Pebbles Project, an NGO that works with the low-income families who live and work on wine farms throughout the Cape Winelands, growing families by providing resources and improving access to high-quality health care & education.
WINEMAKING: The wines hail from the rugged & iconic Swartland - the low-lying, coastal hub of SA’s offbeat and progressive wine industry. The focus is on crafting unique, minimal intervention & fairly produced wines that punch far above their weight.
The Red is an old-school GSM blend with contemporary style. Using vineyards throughout the Coastal Region, the wine encapsulates the diversity of the area while showcasing its champion, Shiraz.
TASTING NOTE: A blend of 75% Shiraz with 18% Grenache, 7% Mourvèdre picked from selected vineyards across the Swartland & Coastal Regions of South Africa. The wine has Bramble berry and sour cherry notes with a little maraschino sweetness and a touch of liquorice, too, then a warming spice finish.
