Save the rhino … with Rhino Run

We’re rather loving the trend of wine makers supporting nature conservation … and this month we’re drinking Van Loveren Family Vineyards’ latest vintage Rhino Run wines. A superb range of great quality wines, they’re celebrating the magnificent Rhino, and the efforts being made to save it. ‘The plight of the rhino has been well-publicised and continues to grow direr every passing day,’ says Van Loveren Wines CEO Phillip Retief. ‘It has mobilised millions of people across the globe to help fight the scourge of poaching. As a producer invested in the preservation of our natural heritage, both through responsible farming practices and initiatives wider afield, Van Loveren has long been involved with conservation and continues through Rhino Run.’

There are five great wines in the range … The Rhino Run Chardonnay 2017 (this slightly wooded, medium-bodied wine created in honour of the white rhino is ideal with creamy pasta dishes, roast pork, veal, risotto, grilled sole, cape salmon, crayfish, prawns, cream cheese or chicken dishes); Rhino Run Chenin Blanc 2018 (the perfect partner to herbed mussels, grilled chicken or pork, seafood dishes and even sushi); The Rhino Run Ian Player 2016 (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot … all ripe berry, cassis and redcurrant); The Rhino Run Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (enjoy with rich meat dishes, pork or venison) and the Rhino Run Pinotage 2017 (perfect with red meat, rich stews, curries and smoked foods). Prices range from R60 to around R71 a bottle.

For a real treat, look out the sixth wine … a limited release collector’s item, The Last One Shiraz 2013. Only 1215 bottles of this Shiraz were released … they sell for R1215 each and each is hand bottled, waxed and labelled, featuring the signature of Cellar Master Bussell Retief on the label, and beautifully presented in a rhino inspired box.
