To celebrate the (surely imminent) arrival of Spring, we have put together a delicious selection of South African wines to tickle your taste buds (it's a box of South African wines perfect for Spring, The Spring Box or 'Springboks'.... see what we did there!!?)
. The case of six bottles includes 3 reds, 2 whites and a rose and, as there is a discount of 20% off South African wines until 29th April, you could get the whole case for a recession-busting £46.34. The wines are as follows:
Boschendal Rose 2012 £8.49 down to £6.79 a bottle - a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Syrah, this fragrant rose makes an ideal wine to serve as an aperitif, light, fresh and juicy, it brings sunshine to the gloomiest of days.
Raats Granite Blocks Chenin Blanc 2012 £9.99 down to £7.99 a bottle - this unoaked varietal displays just off-dry apricot and peach flavours with a citrus finish, and we think would make a superb match with pork stir-fry.
DeMorgenzon DMZ Chardonnay 2012 £10.99 down to £8.79 a bottle - with beautifully integrated oak and vanilla notes, this is a deliciously tropical Chardonnay with none of the cloying sweetness that is sometimes associated with this grape - serve with creamy
Thelema Mountain Red 2010 £10.99 down to £8.79 a bottle - a blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc (phew!) and aged in oak for 18 months, this smooth wine exhibits soft black cherry and plum flavours, perfect
with Spring lamb.
Graham Beck Antony's Yard 2009 £8.74 down to £6.99 a bottle - this Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc) has been a firm Majestic favourite for many years and for good reason. With it's soft tannins and ripe, smoky forest-fruit palate,
it is a beautiful match with roast beef.
Porcupine Ridge Syrah Viognier 2011 £10.99 down to £8.79 a bottle - from Bordeaux to a classic Rhone blend of grapes, a splash of Viognier softens the harsh spice of the Syrah to create a full, rich, powerful red to enjoy with steak burgers.
And there we have it, our Spring Box and all for only £46.34. Enjoy! And don't forget our South African tasting week which runs from Friday 12th April until Thursday 18th April where we will have a selection of delicious wines from our South African range,
including the above wines, open and available to taste all day.
