New Releases October 2014

Radford Dale Frankenstein 2013Radford Dale is the premium label for The Winery of Good Hope, a Stellenbosch based winery that boasts the highest number of 4 Star and Above wines currently in the Platter Guide. The brain-child of Burgundy raised Alex Dale, TWOGH produce wines of exceptional quality in the traditions of the Rhone and Burgundy in France.

100% Pinotage
Brought about by the stubborn belief that Pinotage can make great wine. In essence, the wine was made with it's parentage in mind: Pinot Noir. Grapes were hand picked, hand sorted and then destemmed and lightly crushed. .... Read More

Natte Valleij Wines
Granted in 1715, the historical Natte Valleij and its grand old Cape Dutch buildings have been home to quite a few interesting people & has produced its fair share of fine Cape wines. Everything is kept to tradition – the wines are picked, bottled, corked and labelled by hand – it is a family affair with everyone being pulled in to assist at busy times.

The wines are boutique and exceptional with a few meeting F&V's exacting standards. Our customers have been thrilled with this producers' Cinsault in recent months. Great stories and award-winning wines are the order of the day at Natte Valleij!

POW 2010
4 years of trail, error, and refinement went into the creation of this blend before it was felt good enough to bring to market.
P.O.W. stands for "Prisoner of War" and this beautiful wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec/Petit Verdot. An Italian prisoner of War - captured in Abyssinia by South African troops, was exiled to the Cape to spend the duration of the war on the grounds of Natte Valleij.... Read More

Canevel means "tiny family cellar" or "a small corner of the winery where secrets are jealously guarded" in Venetian dialect – you choose your favourite! This beautiful winery is based in Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene. It was founded in 1979 by the Caramel family and the estate is now managed by last-generation Carlo Caramel. Canevel counts on a fine collection of Prosecco Cru grapes that are scattered throughout the villages of Saccol, Vidor and Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene. They are one of the "Selected Estates of Europe" and we are the first and only to have the privilege of representing them in SA.
Prosecco is often very popular with those who don't care for Champagne. This is due to different flavour profiles of the grapes used and the fact secondary fermentation is done in the steel tanks and NOT in the bottle (as with Champagne). Thus the toasted yeast flavours of Champagne are not present in the cleaner and fresher style of Prosecco.

Brut Spumante
Off dry, lower-alcohol (11%), light-bodied sparkling wine. The main thing here is the ease in which one drinks it. It is insanely delicious and approachable. Made exclusively from Prosecco grapes... Read More

Extra dry brut spumante

Lacourte Godbillon Champagne
This is a tiny family-owned estate in the heart of Champagne in the village of Ecueil (situated in Montagne de Reims, between Reims and Epernay). Monsieur Lacourte is a 5th Generation winemaker and has been the driving force and passion behind some of the best Champagne Frogitt & Vonkel has ever had. His cellar is built under the family home and all the bottles are turned by hand twice a day personally. His children now run the farm and we have remained loyal to them and their fabulous Champagnes for well 10 years now.

LG Brut has become a firm favourite in the Frogitt & Vonkel family and, as always, is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. This is a true representation of why Champagne is loved by so many! ... Read More
