Indaba

“Indaba” is the Zulu word for “a meeting of the minds,” or a traditional gathering of tribal leaders for a sharing of ideas. The brand was created as a celebration of the democratization process in South Africa, and from its inception, the wines have conveyed the spirit of South Africa to American consumers. A portion of the proceeds from the Indaba wines supports a scholarship for formerly disenfranchised South Africans who are interested in wine-related careers. Through growth of the brand and via the affiliated scholarship, Indaba is proud to be a part of the positive changes that are altering the face of South Africa’s wine industry.

    Snoothrank:

    Blue fruits and spicy herbs greet the nose along with a little green anise seed and some sweet gum notes. Fairly fruity in the mouth with enough acidity to give this a touch of an edgy feel, there are no obvious tannins allowing the slightly inky, blue fruits to open nicely on the palate. This is broad with lovely slightly candied blackberry fru... Read More
