Todd’s the Wine Company is adding two distinctive wines from South Africa to its carefully-selected portfolio this winter.

Matumi is an exclusive brand made for Shepherd Neame’s wine company by the Lourensford Estate http://www.lourensford.co.za/.

Established in 1700, Lourensford is steeped in history and heritage but boasts an ultra-modern winery utilising technology unique in the Southern Hemisphere. The magnificent soils and diverse micro-climates create the ideal terroir for world-beating wines.

Todd’s customers and Shepherd Neame licensees now have exclusive access to two new wines – a red and a white.
Matumi Chenin Blanc 2010, from vineyards overlooking Cape Town and False Bay, is produced from bush vines where low yields ensure superb concentrated fruit. The aromas and flavours of peach and pear abound in this dry elegant and rounded wine

Matumi Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is made with hand-picked grapes and the wine is aged in French oak which, with refined soft tannins, results in a wine with an abundance of blackcurrant fruit, just a hint of violet, and a smooth, lasting finish.

Todd’s the Wine Company offers an exclusive range of unique and premium wines from across the globe. Its collection includes quality wines that consistently ‘over deliver’ at their competitive price points and come from well-chosen wine-maker partners.

The company currently works in France, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Chile and South Africa, delivering unique own brands to customers in the on trade.

Todd’s wines and spirits manager Michael Prior said: “We as a business are committed to working wherever possible with small vineyards and independent wineries so we can manage the quality from vineyard to bottle.”
