Cape Venture

Lubanzi Chenin Blanc 2018

Creamy and buttery, and a hint of spice, but no oak. Flexible enough to pair with traditional white wine dishes (cheeses, chicken, cream sauce pasta), but rich enough to expand into heavier meals. I paired it with a duck confit, and it worked beautifully. — 11 days ago

Kanonkop Estate

Simonsberg Stellenbosch Pinotage 2017

Delicious delicious estate wine! Heady heady estate wine. With lively enough acid to dance off the richness. Purpley things, flowers, black cherries, and potpourri all do their darnedest to take you down but it has a lift that keeps you up. And drinking more of it. — 6 days ago
