Screw-Capped Graça

Graça, South Africa’s first Mediterranean-style white wine that is light, fresh and youthful in style, has blown its top, exchanging its traditional cork closure for a screw-cap

The new screw-capped bottles come with a cork key ring displaying the quirky message, “soon to be extinct”.  These limited-edition packs are intended to draw attention in a humorous way to the need to protect cork trees but also the advantages of screw-caps. “Research shows that screw-caps generally make for taint-free wines that maintain flavour and freshness,” says brand spokesperson, Vanessa Kok. 

Both the white and rosé will come closed under screw-caps. The white is a zesty, refreshing blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard and Semillon. The tangy rosé is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion, Colombard and Pinotage. It fits so well into the local lifestyle that in nearly 30 years it has never once changed its appealing positioning.  The brand has built up a loyal following of consumers based on its compatibility with virtually any food, especially seafood.  Graça and Graça Rosé sell for around R28 a bottle.
