ECHO OF G.2011
Possibly the softest, yet most complex, South African wine you will have tasted to date. Bordeauxbeating SA excellence.
4 G. wines is a project of world-beating quality, uncompromising in craftsmanship, detail and precision. "The First Growth of the Cape", it's an example of what South African wine can achieve where only the very finest is used and no expense is spared.
But does it work? Is the wine really that good? Yes.
F&V have reached "Sell Out" on each vintage since the maiden release in 2010. In a recent trade tasting by Falstaff magazine (German language) the 2011 & 2012 vintages of G. were tasted blind against iconic 100 Parker Points wines.

The good news, though, is that the library stock of Amani's finest past vintages has been made available exclusively to Frogitt & Vonkel.

KRONENDAL BOUTIQUE WINERY A boutique winery in the truest sense, Kronendal sits on just 2ha of land on the outskirts of Durbanville. The focus here is on excellence, not quantity, so only grapes deemed 100% are used. The wine is made as gently as possible with hand punch downs at 4-hourly intervals. Labour intensive but worth it – boasting a chest-full of medals any Director would be proud of.
Mirari – 2011 (4* Platter, Bronze Veritas)
Hand-crafted to perfection – one sip, and the gentle production methods and quality of grapes are unmistakable.
