Chenin Blanc is South Africas most widely planted varietal and the Capes signature white. This fresh, easy- drinking version offers vibrant flavors of honeyed pear, apple and succulent tropical fruit.-Winemakers Notes
The Indaba brand was first launched in the US in 1996, shortly after South Africa transitioned to a democratic republic. "Indaba" is the Zulu word for "a meeting of the minds," or a traditional gathering of tribal leaders for sharing 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.
The Indaba range is carefully selected from emerging regions of the Cape winelands such as Robertson, Wellington, and the Breede River Valley. Production is overseen by Bruwer Raats, celebrated winemaker of Raats Family Wines and long-term consultant for Indaba. All are bottled under user-friendly screwcap closures with environmentally friendly packaging. In addition to garnering regular "Best Buy" nods from Wine Enthusiast, Indaba has earned extensive praise in Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, which described the wines as "truly mind-boggling values" for the past two consecutive vintages.
A commitment to social responsibility has always been a key part of the Indaba philosophy. A portion of the proceeds from the brands global sales funds a scholarship program that supports wine-related studies for students from formerly disenfranchised communities in South Africa. 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 Africas wine industry.-Winery Notes

Leading the world in sustainability, South Africa is largely considered to be the greenest wine region on earth. Indaba wines are crafted in the Cape Floral Kingdom, the smallest, yet most diverse of the six plant kingdoms. The look and spirit of Indaba reflects both South Africa's position as a leader in sustainable production and the handcrafted approach found in the country's art world. A commitment to social responsibility has always been a key part of the Indaba philosophy. A portion of the brand's global sales is allocated to the Indaba Education Fund, a fully accredited 501c3, which supports early childhood development by providing infrastructure, learning materials and teacher training at schools established for wineland workers' children.
The Indaba range is comprised of Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Mosaic (red blend). Stylistically fresh, juicy and approachable, these wines are food friendly and offer a bottling for every palate.
