Selaks ‘The Taste Collection’ Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

17-May-2017
As a proud independent, family-owned winery, Selaks had a history stretching back to 1934 when Croatian immigrant Marino Selak had his first vintage. The company is one of many that morphed as it grew, undergoing multiple mergers, with BRL Hardy acquiring all of its shares in 2000, which itself became purchased to come under the Constellation Brands umbrella in 2003. Yet with the new ownership, the original Selaks spirit of appealing to all segments of the market continues. As well as successfully catering to the FMCG category, Selaks have the flagship ‘Founders’ range which stand tall in any company (click here to see my reviews of the ‘Founders’ limited release wines in December 2014).

The parent company realises that one of the most difficult things about wine is conveying its taste and character in a simple and clear-cut manner to the consumer. The Selaks brand has been chosen as the ideal vehicle to introduce ‘The Taste Collection’ where wines have a descriptive name that describes the style of the wine. The labelling is attractively bold and busy. Here, I review the new wines. www.selaks.co.nz
