The 2018 Lubanzi Red Blend wine in a can begins with pleasing aromas of red and black cherry, strawberry and cranberry with spice notes and a touch earthiness. Taking a sip reveals a smooth, medium-bodied, tasty wine with lots of sweet, juicy fruit plus nicely integrated spice notes and hints of chocolate. It’s a light, fresh style of Rhone blend that’s quite enjoyable and it fits the can format perfectly. The touch of earthiness from the nose continues and leads into the dry, long, tart, mouthwatering finish. Bulk Buy!

The 2018 Lubanzi Chenin Blanc wine in a can begins with pleasing aromas of pear, touches of tropical fruit and a little fresh baked bread. This is terribly refreshing stuff. The light-bodied wine features a nice mouthfeel and viscosity, bright acidity and good depth of flavor on the yummy peach, citrus and green apple fruit. Touches of spice lead into the long, dry, finish of long-lasting tart fruit.
