Save £27 on a case of South African Chardonnay


Access to Times+ events and offers is exclusive to members of The Times and The Sunday Times

Times subscribers can stock up on six bottles of Lobster Shack Chardonnay Viognier 2016 for just £5.99 a bottle. You'll enjoy a £27 saving and free delivery (normally £7.99).

This is a deliciously fruity, aromatic white from the Cape's most enthusiastic winemaker. Bruce Jack travelled the world perfecting his skills before setting up his own cellar and becoming South Africa's Winemaker of the Year.

One of the most contagiously enthusiastic winemakers you'll ever meet, Bruce Jack studied winemaking at Australia's famous Roseworthy College, then perfected his craft at iconic Aussie wineries Grant Burge and Simon Hackett before a spell wowing the French in Bordeaux. He knows the technical side of winemaking inside out and has a real passion that shines through in his wines. His cellar, in a former dynamite factory near the sea, scooped Winery of the Year in 2008. Being so close to the ocean there's a wealth of fresh fish to enjoy, so Bruce invented Lobster Shack as the ideal accompaniment, and the 2016 is his best yet. A rich, zesty blend of Chardonnay and aromatic Viognier, it's spot on with shellfish, and best of all with lobster.
