Sustainable farming – charitable venture – eco-friendly packaging
Alongside Cannonberg, we are proud to be supporting a further self-empowerment project with our friends at Imbuko.
The ‘Releaf’ project symbolises the true meaning of sustainability and harmony within nature. Sustainable agriculture is used in order to cultivate 100% hand harvested, organically grown grapes that are used to produce two separate cuvées. Every effort has been made to ensure this wine is as eco-friendly as possible, down to the fact it is packaged using partially recycled glass and is labelled with recycled paper and sustainable ink.
Similarly to our Cannonberg venture, a portion of the proceeds of the Imbuko Releaf wine goes towards supporting the Imbuko Schools Support Project – through which the estate supports a number of children in education by funding scholarships to local schools.
The red blend – dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and backed up with Shiraz and Merlot – is an elegant wine offering intense blackberry & cassis flavours leading to a finish with vanilla spices. It is a big, rich powerful and spiced number that offers excellent value for money.
