Just in time for the festive season – Roodeberg, the legendary South African classic, has launched a Reserve red blend in a stylish wooden wine crate to make the perfect gift this year.
A newcomer to the South African wine scene, Roodeberg Reserve 2017 was previously only available in selected international markets. The decision to expand Roodeberg Reserve’s availability also to local wine lovers is one of the highlights of Roodeberg’s 70th-anniversary celebrations.
“This refined wine bursts with red plum, blueberries, crushed herbs and tobacco leaf. Hints of dark chocolate and oak rise from the glass while the silky soft tannins complement the intricate layers,” says winemaker Louwritz Louw, who enjoys the wine with hearty meat casseroles and game dishes.
Meticulously crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Shiraz (23%), Tempranillo (12%), Petit Verdot (7%), Petit Sirah (4%) and splashes of Cabernet Franc (3%), Merlot (2%) and Malbec (1%), the wine was matured for 18 months in a combination of new, second and third-fill French oak barrels.
The Roodeberg Reserve 2017 is available at selected Pick n Pay family stores at R149. 99 per bottle. As an added Christmas bonus, you receive a stylish wooden crate, cheese board and luggage tag, when you purchase six bottles while stocks last.
