Really Good Wine

When a Really Good Wine does Really Good Things … that’s double the joy


We’re used to sipping Really Good Wines from Robertson Winery (good on palate, and good on your pocket). Now the estate is doing some Really Good Things …  like the recent launch of a brand new, much-needed, Really Good Library at Nkqubela Primary School in Robertson.

The beautiful new building was formally handed over during a heart-warming and inspirational ceremony … a very happy morning with a colourful close,  with the unveiling of the Really Good Library’s striking designs and vibrant colours. The design of the school walls is echoed in the packaging of  Robertson Winery’s range of Really Good Wine, their popular range of top-quality cultivar wines (750ml, 1L, 2L and 3L).

The striking multi-coloured neck-tags invite wine lovers to share the joys of giving and to make a difference. You can use the neck-tags as very attractive bookmarks, plus you can scan the QR code on the tag and you can ‘visit’ the  Robertson Winery’s Really Good Library at Nkqubela Primary School.


The Really Good Wines include …


ROBERTSON WINERY SAUVIGNON BLANC 2021 – a new vintage release and the perfect summer wine … full and refreshing with powerful varietal aromas of passion fruit, green apple and freshly cut grass, expressive mango and granadilla flavours and a zesty crispness. Best enjoyed with fresh oysters.


ROBERTSON WINERY CHENIN BLANC 2021 – a new vintage release … sprightly and enticing,  with tropical fruit and floral aromas and a touch of spiciness. An abundance of ripe rounded fruit on the palate is perfectly balanced by a bright acidity. Enjoy with grilled calamari.


ROBERTSON WINERY CHARDONNAY 2020 – Fresh citrus fruits and rich melon characters give the wine a full rounded palate that combines well with the subtle creaminess and nuttiness from gentle oaking and the lively natural acidity. Best enjoyed with baked, pan-fried, grilled or smoked salmon.


ROBERTSON WINERY BEAUKETT 2021 – a new vintage release, this gorgeous semi-sweet wine is a blend of Colombard and Muscadel, with an enchanting muscat-scent. Generous and succulent with a subtle spicy palate, the wine is nicely freshened by gentle acidity. Will make a delicious pairing with Asian cuisine.


ROBERTSON WINERY CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2020 – This full-bodied, new vintage release red wine shows an abundance of rich mulberry, plum and blackcurrant aromas and flavours with a hint of oak spice and vanilla, supported by soft luscious tannins adding smoothness and a fruity softness.  Will make an ideal accompaniment to Beef Wellington.


ROBERTSON WINERY SHIRAZ 2020 – This full-bodied, new vintage release displays freshly crushed black pepper with hints of cinnamon and cloves on the nose with lots of brambly red berry fruit and rich mulberry on the palate and well-integrated vanilla tones. Will pair perfectly with slow-roasted lamb shanks.


ROBERTSON WINERY MERLOT 2020 – a new vintage release, this rich, dark ruby-red wine attracts with ripe plum and sweet black cherry aromas which follow through onto the palate, complemented by well-integrated vanilla tones from gentle wooding, and a velvet finish. Enjoy with a mushroom or truffle pasta.


The wines cost from R55 upwards, and can be found at your local liquor store or at shop.robertsonwinery.co.za
