Saxenburg launches new Drunken Fowl Shiraz

The launch of this “easy drinking” shiraz aimed at the younger market was held at Voila! in Bantry Bay
It will be selling in the region of R65 to R70 on the farm and in the trade. It has been introduced by the son Vincent and daughter Fiona of the owners of the farm Adrian and Birgit Bührer, who were also at the launch. It turned into rather a long cocktail party and the young folk were enjoying themselves a lot. It was a treat to see Winemaker Nico van der Merwe who has been rather ill and is now on the road to recovery
