Rhino Tears Wine has introduced the newest addition to their collection, a Sauvignon Blanc. Produced by the Mt Vernon estate, the wine range was created to raise funds to assist in the war against rhino poaching.
Wine lovers can expect hints of nettle and fresh cut grass on the nose, gooseberry and tropical fruit on the pallet, all complemented by a well-structured zesty dry finish. The Rhino Tears range of wines is suitable for game drives, sundowners and everyday occasions.
For every bottle sold R15 goes directly to the SANParks Honorary Rangers to be used in anti-poaching projects in SANParks across South Africa. To date, almost R1.3 million has been raised to be used in the fight against rhino poaching.
“Every bottle purchased really makes a difference. The cost of the anti-poaching war is expensive and the men and women involved need all they can get against a ruthless enemy,” explains Mt Vernon MD, John Hooper, who came up with the idea for making a wine that could contribute to the cause.
Rhino Tears Sauvignon Blanc can be purchased at major retailers around the country and online at www.rhinotears.co.za, for a recommended retail price of R60 per bottle. Also available is a red blend.
I had the pleasure of sampling the Rhino Tears Sauvignon Blanc and it is a delightful wine. Knowing that R15 from each bottle sale goes to a good cause makes me think of buying a few bottles, not just for my enjoyment but to gift to friends during the festive season. Think about it, that would get the recipient of the gift thinking and they may want to pay it forward by gifting someone else. Cheers!
