Here’s a wine that’s just perfect for you to serve at your next book club evening. Mensa is a novel wine range (see what we did there?), taking storytelling to the next level. How?
Well, it’s supported by an augmented reality app (available on Android and IOS) and when scanned using this Mensa Wine App on your smartphone, the wine label comes to life as a book. Mensa encourages everyone to ‘live a great story’ and in turn, tells a great story. And like all good stories, there’s a twist. In this case, it’s the revolutionary Helix cork closure, which allows you to twist off and reseal the wine by hand. The range consists of a Sauvignon Blanc (citrus and tropical notes), a delicious Chardonnay Pinot Noir (all citrus and red berries), and a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon (teeming with dark chocolate and blackberries). You’ll find them for around R75 to R85 a bottle at Checkers. Details: mensawines.com
