Oak Valley, one of South Africa's most sought-after wine producers, has undergone a packaging transformation to visually express the history and climate of the Elgin region with a nod to the producer’s tag line: a place of discovery. The new labels depict the cool climate that makes it stand out from other South African wine growing areas with grey clouds a theme throughout.
At 350 meters above sea level and around 20 km from the sea itself the vineyards have a cool coastal influence that mean long cool ripening seasons that give the wines their hallmark acidity and amazing ageing potential. The new labels also mark the launch of new wine names: Beneath the Clouds Chardonnay and Sound of Silence Pinot Noir as well as a new tier to the range the very premium and limited release: Groenlandberg Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The new labels are expected into the UK before the end of the year and more information is due to be published on the Oak Valley website shortly.
