We are sure you are aware that there is a national fuel crisis at petrol stations. With fuel being one of the primary commodities of delivery companies, it is only a matter of time before this impacts delivery depots. Although our delivery company have their own fuel on site (which we have been assured should not be affected), other depots do not have this resource. This has not yet become a large-scale issue, but there are isolated failures as drivers cannot find the fuel to do their jobs. We hope this is a short-term issue.
We appreciate your understanding of what is another unusual time for us all.
Tim Atkin MW’s South Africa Special Report 2021 report seeks to discover and bring into the light the very best efforts of the country’s inspirational viticulturalists and winemakers. This year it runs to 247 pages, with over 1,200 tasting notes for wines he rated as the very best that this country can produce, along with his ‘podium’ recognising individuals and particular wines worthy in his view of special mention.
Compiling his ninth SA report was a continuation of the same remote judging process he followed in 2020 with the generous help of Wines of South Africa (WOSA) and other industry players, not to mention around 70 Zoom calls with local producers.
We are really pleased to start using the amazing Flexi-Hex™ system for packaging our wine. Flexi-hex’s innovative design offers greater protection to bottles in transit than traditional methods due to better protection. It gives us easy storage, faster packaging time, reduced materials and less breakage. Great for you too!
During these unprecedented times, our normal shipping timescales may be delayed. This is not due to us not shipping on time but the prevalence of COVID affecting delivery drivers, especially in London. Please, stay safe. Be patient. Your wine will arrive.
