  OWI is market-driven, which, contrary to being production-driven, gives us the advantage of responding promptly to wine trends. Flexibility, differentiation and innovation set us apart.

TOP PARKER POINTS – ANOTHER FEATHER IN OUR CAP


2014 has been a great year for us. Apart from a superb vintage, we saw the successful launch of some truly exciting products, including Balance ECO, a highly relevant brand for the informed consumer. Among the many other highlights has been our performance at the Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards where five of our wines were awarded gold and silver medals.

And now, to top it all, we’re proud to announce that no less than six of our wines scored between 83 and 87 points in Robert Parker’s wine review for 2014. This leading U.S. wine critic has been described as “the most influential wine writer in the world” and we’re proud of the following scores:

2013 Willow Way Shiraz Mourvèdre - 83
2014 Balance Chenin Blanc – 85
2014 Balance Chardonnay – 86
2014 Willow Way Chardonnay Pinot Grigio – 86
2013 Balance Cabernet Sauvignon – 87
2012 Balance Pinotage – 87

LATEST ATTRACTION: HARVEST SONG

Harvest Song


‘The busy bee has no time for sorrow.’
  - William Blake

Evoking the magic of the harvest, the refreshingly different Harvest Song range with its eye-catching bee label is ready to take the market by storm! Aimed at the ever-growing niche of ecologically aware wine lovers, it promises an authentic South African wine experience with quality wines grown in specially selected vineyards.


COMING SOON FROM THE SWARTLAND...

At Overhex Wines International, flexibility, differentiation and innovation set us apart. And in line with this, we take pleasure in catering for the latest trends in the wine market. One of these trends has been identified as the Swartland, an area situated in the West Coast District and enthusiastically described by wine guru Tim Atkin as “one of the most dynamic regions in the southern hemisphere”. Indeed, following a ‘wine revolution’ ignited by a band of maverick growers and winemakers, the Swartland has broken into international markets where their wines have gained critical acclaim.

Swartland

To take advantage of this, OWI is in the process of developing a prime Swartland brand, which in its realisation will offer the distinctive Swartland characteristics and appeal, backed by OWI’s marketing expertise. So watch this space!

FESTIVE GREETINGS

The members of the Overhex team take pleasure in wishing you a fabulous Festive Season and a fruitful 2015. Thank you for your valued support – we look forward to bringing you great wines and innovative brand solutions for many years to come!
