No scoffing boxed wine now

A few years ago, we’d have scoffed at the idea of a glass of wine from a box. Now we wouldn’t say no … not when it’s one of the premium wines introduced this week by Woolworths, in collaboration with some of SA’s leading wine brands. Not only are the wines up there with best, but there’s another terrific reason to stock up on these. They boxes contain 2L of wine, the price is the equivalent of two bottles … you do the maths. Yip … 500ml for free. The wines, so far, are …

The long standing crowd favourite Pierre Jourdan Tranquille Blush. A delicate and fresh salmon pink blush with fragrant aromas of lively strawberry and raspberry with a hint of citrus fruits, it’s deliciously versatile and elegant and, box or not, is the epitome of elegance.

A popular choice for Sauvignon Blanc drinkers, Diemersal Sauvignon Blanc is an unwooded and crisp fresh wine that’s jam-packed with zesty lime flavours and a mouth-watering finish. It’s the perfect choice for summer.

One of South Africa’s most famous Pinotages, Beyerskloof Pinotag,  is a quality Pinotage which is lightly wooded and fruit driven. It’s teeming with juicy black berry flavours and offers a well-balanced finish. It is a great accompaniment to a red meat dish and well as anything spicy.

And finally, a go-to for Chenin lovers, Kleine Zalze Chenin Blanc. This delightfully approachable wine has tropical notes … think ripe pineapple and guava, beautifully complemented by hints of citrus which result in a crisp, lingering taste that matches well with seafood, pork or chicken.

These are all exclusive to Woolworths, and prices start at R124.99. Details: www.woolworths.co.za.
