Overview

The CIP 2017 forms an alternative wine investment in which the public can capture South Africa's most investable and desirable wines. Seven blue-chip Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignons, that have the lowest relative prices, are included in an investment portfolio of 120 bottles. Buying CIP 2017 en-primeur saves 19% on the estimated release prices over and above the 5 years of free cellaring. There were 40 portfolios available at R50,000 per portfolio.
