Two South African Icons Join The Box Wine Revolution

Bag-in-box wines have been around for decades but haven’t been considered even remotely cool until recently. In 2020, South African box wines made history when they outsold bottled wines for the first time ever. Convenience and a surge in quality have made box wine a pandemic staple for many wine lovers. Keeping in line with consumers’ need for value without compromising on taste or quality, two well-known premium South African brands have launched their wine in convenient bag-in-box packaging.

Fleur du Cap and Zonnebloem are now offering their premium wine in 2L slim boxes that not only fits easily in the fridge but offers an elegant addition to any social occasion.

Made for a braai and summer picnic, Fleur du Cap offers a Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc, whilst Zonnebloem brings red to the party with a Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Fleur du Cap Rosé

One of the most versatile and food-friendly wines that can be enjoyed all year round, this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir rosé reveals inviting notes of strawberry and florals. Crisp with a fresh acidity, juicy blackberry fruit with winter melon linger in the mouth.

Fleur du Cap Sauvignon Blanc 

Brilliant clear colour with green tinges, the nose is fresh with an abundance of tropical aromas, and floral and herbaceous undertones.  This is an elegantly balanced wine with crisp, concentrated flavours of passion fruit, lime and melon on the palate.

Zonnebloem Cabernet Sauvignon

A generous red wine with true varietal expression. Gorgeous intense dark red in colour with alluring aromas of blackcurrants, dark berries, raspberries and oak spice. The wine is full-bodied and smoky with ripe plum and raspberry fruit flavours and hints of cloves and oak spice.

Zonnebloem Merlot 

Juicy and fruit-forward, the wine is a lovely ruby red colour with a bouquet of red fruit, mulberry and hints of cigar box and oak spice. Elegant and medium-to-full-bodied, the delicate red fruit integrates brilliantly with the oak flavours to deliver a well-balanced, lingering finish.

Wine lovers can enjoy a single glass of vino without wasting the rest of a bottle. Other advantages that come with bag-in-box wine include fresher wine for a longer and the fact that it can last for up to 4 weeks in the fridge.

The premium bag-in-box wines will be available nationwide from leading wine outlets, with prices ranging from R150 to R190.
