Lubanzi Rhone Blend 2020, Coastal Region, South Africa

2020 vintage – 75% Shiraz, 18% Grenache, 7% Mourvedre. Soil/Climate: Decomposed granite & shale, mix of climate conditions. Fermentation: Small batch, 90% natural winemaking: 50% MLF, Foudres aging, filtered, unfined, vegan. Tasting Notes: “An old-school Rhone blend wtih a contemporary style. Crafted from vineyards dotted throughout South Africa’s coastal region, this wine was created to offer complexity while simultaneously showcasing the red grape champion of South Africa, Shiraz. Hand harvested and made using little intervention in the cellar. More robust than privious vintages with noted blueberry, plum & black pepper character.”
