Discover the ultimate South African wines with Springbok Wines!

By Promotions 31 August 2021

If you are looking to expand your taste buds, look beyond the Old World and dive into the wonders of South African wines! Springbok Wines is here to introduce six signature labels they believe to be the epitome of South African wines. With a rosé, white, red, and sparkling included, no stone is unturned in giving you the full taste of South Africa.

Pink Valley rosé

First up, an exceptional Rosé shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg, and the Pink Valley Rosé from South Africa’s most famous wine region, Stellenbosch, will quench that summer thirst—without burning a hole in your wallet!

Swerwer Chenin Blanc

No list is complete without a Chenin Blanc, and with South Africa producing more Chenin Blanc than the rest of the world—combined—it only makes sense to include the Swerwer Chenin Blanc in this list. If you want to know why this white wine is all the rage, and why South Africa is the frontrunner in producing this particular wine, this bottle is the perfect place to start.

Aristea MCC Blanc

Let’s not forget the pièce de résistance: the Aristea MCC Blanc, a premium sparkling wine, and Method Cap Classiqué (MCC)—which is a South African term used to indicate that a bottle of sparkling wine has been made in the same traditional method used to make Champagne! It is also the sole reason MCCs are often blind-tasted against sparkling wines from Champagne and, more often than not, people cannot tell them apart!

De Grendel Rubaiyat

We cannot forget the outstanding De Grendel Rubaiyat, which is a Bordeaux blend. It is a wonder why South Africa’s ability to produce Bordeaux blends is often overlooked when you have heavy-hitters like this!

City on a Hill Red

The Swartland wine region, where this particular wine is produced, is South Africa’s best-kept secret. It produces outstanding Shiraz, Grenache, Cinsault, and other varietals suited to a warmer, Mediterranean-style climate, and this red blend shows off the best of this up and coming region.

Spioenkop “1900” Pinotage

And last, but definitely not least, is the Pinotage—South Africa’s unique red wine variety, and exemplary embodiment of what a great pinotage should be; complex, refined, and bursting with dark fruit flavours. Spioenkop “1900” pinotage is a must-try for any curious wine drinker, but don’t just take our word for it—try it yourself.

If you like the sound of these wines and are itching for a taste, you are in luck: Springbok Wines has packaged these six flagship bottles into what they call the South African guide. If you like the sound of that, you will also be pleased to know that they are currently offering Localiiz readers an exclusive 20 percent discount on this starter pack!
