Come walk on the wild side with us. Channeling our African roots, our cans of gnarly old bush vine Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc are flavorful, fun and fresh. And for a similar price range as the mass-produced chemical wines, you can get a vineyard-to-table wine in a can that is certified for sustainability and integrity and made with an emphasis on avoiding artificial additives. 

Tasting Notes:

Chenin Blanc: A bright, crisp, and clean wine reminiscent of a warm summer's day. If you do pour it into a glass, expect a deep straw color that points towards both ripe freshness and complexity. The nose brings tropical and stone fruits first, eliciting thoughts of tangerine and lychee. The palate is round and fleshy with lychee again, along with white peach, apricot & green apple.  The finish is long, soft & affectionate.

Sauvignon Blanc: Vibrant and fresh notes of passion fruit, passion fruit, pink grapefruit and chamomile. On the palate, a distinct minerality from this cooler climate as expected. A beautiful salinity runs through the wine with youthfulness and vibrancy on the palate which builds and encapsulates the aromas. Some beautiful depth and length adds to the classiness of this wine

Pairing Suggestions:

Chenin Blanc: It’s impossible not to be swept away by this swoon-worthy Chenin Blanc, especially when paired with some delicious homemade food! Enjoy this aromatic white with equally aromatic southeast Asian fare - coconut and lime curries, Chinese lemon chicken, sweet ‘n’ sour pork or tofu and Pad Thai would all be excellent options. Chicken and lemon tagine, roast cauliflower or cauliflower soup, and all kinds of white fish and seafood dishes would also do the job perfectly.

Sauvignon Blanc: This wine will pair well with any fresh seasonal salads, delicious sushi, oysters, pan seared fish and any meal on a patio or outdoors.
Something different: salsa (home made best!) with lime chips.

Vineyards and Winemaking:

Chenin Blanc: Made from 20 year old dry farmed Chenin vines planted in soils of decomposed granite and shale. The grapes are handpicked and fermented spontaneously using naturally occurring yeasts.
