KWV, a South Africa-based wine producer, is looking to make its wines available in the UK to grow business.

The move follows the formation of distribution partnership with Myliko Wines in September 2012.

In the UK, KWV mainly aims for growth opportunity in the independent retail sector.

As part of its foray into the UK, KWV will showcase its wines through Myliko Wines at the London International Wine Fair.

Myliko Wines sales manager Carl Koenen told the drinks business, "We want to focus on the £7-10 bracket, establish that base and then push our other wines forward."

To support its entry into the UK, the company has already refreshed its packaging and plans to add improved products to its portfolio.

KWV foreign chief winemaker Australian Richard Rowe was quoted by the website as saying that around four to five years ago the company produced highly alcoholic, oaky, malo lactic Chardonnay from warmer climate areas.

"Now we have no malo usually, source from cooler areas of the Western Cape and maybe put the wines in oak for just six or seven months," Rowe added.

The company is also planning to reduce its alcohol level and maintain it below 14% ABV.

It further plans to introduce a rose wine under its Roodeberg brand with retail price of around £10 for the UK independent retailers looking for mid-level priced wines.

Rowe said he is hoping to see the products in the UK, Sweden, the US, Australia, Japan and to some extent in China.

KWV wines will be represented by Myliko Wines at stand L10 at the London International Wine Fair, which is scheduled to take place at ExCel, London on 20-22 May 2013.
