Diamond River to flow into UK

08 August, 2008

Durham-based Lanchester Wine Cellars has launched a range of South African wines made in conjunction with Cape Diamond Vineyards in Lutzville.

The Diamond River line-up consists of a Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. A Sauvignon Blanc will be added from the 2008 vintage later in the year.

Lanchester managing director Tony Cleary said: "We have been working for some time now to develop a range of affordable, approachable, off-dry wine styles that appeal to both seasoned wine drinkers and newcomers .

" Soon we will be bottling the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon in a 18.7cl bottle

for the UK, Irish and European markets."

Wines come in a heavyweight bottle with a Stelcap closure.
