Lanzerac Wine Estate scooped the titles of Best Value Red and Best Value White for its Alma Mater Red and White at the recent 2014 Best Value Wine Awards.
The wines were part of a line up of approximately 1 000 wines on the tasting table retailing at less than R80 a bottle. Of these, 472 were found to offer the best quality-to-price ratio and worthy of inclusion in the 2014 edition of the Best Value Wine Guide, which will be available towards the end of September.
The recently released wines to come out of the Lanzerac portfolio are part of a trio, being the Alma Mater Rosé, Alma Mater White and Alma Mater Red, presented in the iconic teardrop bottle. This range is aimed at the young or first generation wine drinkers – a range of uncomplicated wines full of fruit and sunshine with a juicy mouth feel and soft tannins.
The Alma Mater White is a white blend made primarily of Chenin Blanc grapes with a small percentage of Pinot Blanc. The wine is tank fermented in order to retain freshness with a typical tropical nose. The Alma Mater Red, a Shiraz-driven red blend, displays prominent fruit on the nose with a juicy palate ending with soft, supple tannins.
The wines are available directly from the Tasting Room as well as select retail outlets nationwide, retailing for approximately R49 per bottle.
