They are Cabernet Sauvignon (£9.99), Chenin Blanc (£7.99) Pinotage (£7.49) and Sauvignon Blanc (£6.99).?The wines come from Citrusdal – which already supplies own-label Fairtrade wines to the multiple – and two new suppliers, Bosman and Mosaique.?Sainsbury’s winemaker Clem Yates said: “On a trip to South Africa last year, top of our agenda was to source wines that had the quality to be part of the Taste The Difference range while
allowing us to support producers in challenged regions.”?All the South African wines are on offer at 25% off the bottle price until March 22.?The fifth wine is a Carmenère which lands later this month.
