More about this wine from 2018 Lubanzi Chenin Blanc
Cape Town, South Africa is one of the most gorgeous cities on the planet. It is literally where mountains meet the ocean. Our crew was lucky enough to spend a week road tripping through Cape Town and the wine country that surrounds the picturesque town. We quickly discovered that Chenin Blanc is the country's go-to grape and the wine is nearly a ubiquitous part to nightly sunsets, which we can't even begin to describe in words.

Now if you don't have time for the 16-hour flight to Cape Town, the Lubanzi Chenin Blanc can take you there in your imagination. It's the juice the locals drink but brought to America in a fun can. The nose is an uber flowery and citrusy version of a white tea with notes of pear, peach, lychee, green apple, and apricot. The palate is a bit more complex with an elegant and creamy lemon curd zest that ends with a perfectly refreshing finish that makes you crave the next sip.
How to drink it

Eating...

Fresh seafood and sunsets. We took a shot grilling oysters on the half shell marinated with EVOO, garlic, and a bit of this wine.
