Boland Cellar has opted to go green for the 2012 SA Cheese Festival this
weekend (27 to 30 April) and eco-conscious wine lovers should not miss
the opportunity to taste Boland's popular eco-friendly Flutterby range
The range was launched to great acclaim in 2011 with a crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc showing rich tropical tones and a Merlot with lusciously soft and subtle oak undertones to complement the fruit. The latest addition to the range is an off-dry Rosé, which displays perfect balance with excellent length and a slightly fruity finish.
The slender, 750ml PET bottles have been a hit with eco-conscious consumers and outdoor enthusiasts. The lightweight and easily transportable range with its convenient screw cap is the perfect picnic partner and offers a varietal for every taste, each sporting its own unique butterfly label. The unique PET packaging technology presents a significant reduction in the manufacturing carbon footprint as the material is 100% recyclable.
Boland Cellar consistently offers consumers great value and quality across their wide-ranging wine portfolio and will also have a selection of award-winning wines from the flagship Boland Five Climates range on offer. Grapes for the Five Climates range are received from five diverse climate zones within the Paarl region and capture the fine expressions of regionality through the masterful blending.
With winter drawing closer, this is also the perfect time to try Boland Cellar’s Cappupinoccinotage. The name is a mouthful, but so is the wine. This full-bodied Pinotage captures the quintessential earthiness and sweet red berry flavours of South Africa’s indigenous cultivar and delivers seductive notes of mocha and ground coffee. Also look out for the new 1.5 l LE GRANDE CAPPU bottle, which retails from R60.
Tickets for the 2012 SA Cheese Festival are available from Computicket or Checkers stores (no tickets at the gates) at R110. Senior citizens pay R90 and children 13 years and younger enter absolutely free. The festival runs from 10h00 to 18h00 each day and 17h00 on the last day at Sandringham (on the N1 halfway between Cape Town and Paarl).
