Did you know doing your bit to help save the Rhino is as easy a enjoying a delicious glass of wine? That’s right, all you need to do is stock up on wine these holidays and toast to saving our Rhino. Van Loveren has joined the fight to save the Rhino in South Africa with the launch of Rhino Run, an exciting new range of wines that celebrate this magnificent animal of the African plains and the efforts being made to save it.
The Rhino Run range offers wine lovers four delicious wines including The Rhino Run Chardonnay 2015 (a slightly wooded, medium-bodied wine created in honour of the white rhino), The Rhino Run Ian Player 2014 (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot), The Rhino Run Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (with ripe berries, cassis and red currants on the palate with good oak maturation realising a soft, toasty finish), and Rhino Run Pinotage 2015 (with a complex nose of banana, cassis and strawberry followed by layers of fruit, vanilla and spice on the palate.) A fifth wine will be added to the range in coming weeks and this flagship addition will be a limited release, collector’s item – perfect for a festive gift for a special someone!
Launched under the banner of Honour the Legends, Rhino Run aims to not only highlight the poaching crisis, but will also make a contribution to the esteemed Player Ntombela Foundation with every bottle sold. The Rhino Run range is inspired by the late Dr Ian Player, founder of the Player Ntombela Foundation and the conservationist who dedicated his life and career since the 1960s to lead the efforts to save the rhino.
Rhino Run joins Van Loveren’s distinguished portfolio and will be available at leading wine retailrs nationwide. The Rhino Run Chardonnay is priced at around R45 a bottle, while the three red wines will sell for around R55 a bottle.
In addition to money raised for the Foundation through every bottle of Rhino Run sold, donations to this worthy cause can also be made through the Rhino Run website – visit the Royal Rhino website now for more information and to make a donation.
