Boland Cellar goes green at Mercury Wine Week
- by -
Eco-conscious wine lovers should not miss the opportunity to taste Boland’s popular eco-friendly Flutterby range and more at the Mercury Wine Week.

The Flutterby 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 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.   The Boland Five Climates Chenin Blanc is on offer at Mercury Wine Week.

Winter 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.   

Festival goers will also be able to sample Boland Cellar’s Sixty 40 Red and White blends.
The Mercury Wine Week 2013 opened yesterday and is open today and tomorrow (Friday, 30 August) from 5.30pm to 8.30pm. Tickets cost R100 and are available at Computicket and at the door.  

Five of Boland Cellar’s wines will be included in the 2014 edition of the Best Value Wine Guide  - Cellar Five Climates Chardonnay 2013, Five Climates Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, Flutterby Sauvignon Blanc 2013, Five Climates Shiraz 2011, Five Climates Merlot 2011
