Traditionally, when describing boxed wine, the word ‘premium’ doesn’t exactly spring to mind. But Woolworths is looking to change that with its exciting new range of ‘premium’ 2L boxed wines from some of South Africa’s top wineries. Forget the notion that a ‘papsak’ is for varsity students and philistines, Woolworths is making papsak classy again, and we’re kind of here for it.
But why this new love of boxed wine? In a press release sent out to the media, the retailer explained that the new range is its way of ensuring customers get the very best quality, value (and volume!) in times that they need it most. According to Woolworths, the new boxed wine range provides buyers with an affordable option as the price of a 2l box is equivalent to buying two bottles of wine, effectively giving the customer 500ml for free.
The impressive range of four premium 2L boxed wines, showcase exclusive collaborations with some leading South African wine brands. The wines in the range including Pierre Jourdan Tranquille Blush, Diemersal Sauvignon Blanc, Beyerskloof Pinotage, and Kleine Zalze Chenin Blanc.
A long-standing crowd favourite, Pierre Jourdan Tranquille Blush is a delicate and fresh salmon pink blush with fragrant aromas of lively strawberry and raspberry with a hint of citrus fruits. Deliciously versatile and elegant, this wine is the epitome of elegance.
A popular choice for Sauvignon Blanc drinkers, Diemersal Sauvignon Blanc is an unwooded and crisp fresh wine that showcases the true diversity of Durbanville’s terrior. Jam-packed with zesty lime flavours and a mouth-watering finish, this wine is a perfect choice for summer.
One of South Africa’s most famous Pinotages, Beyerskloof Pinotage is a quality Pinotage which is lightly hooded, fruit driven and has been made with old bush grapes. 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.
A go-to for Chenin lovers, Kleine Zalze Chenin Blanc is a delightfully approachable wine. Think tropical flavours of 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.
This exciting range is exclusive to Woolworths, so you won’t be finding it anywhere else. With a starting price of R124.99, these new wine options are ideal for summer braais and picnics with family and friends.
