Fram is the project of esteemed South African winemaker, Thinus Kruger, whose philosophies on producing and enjoying wines have led to the creation of a small range of excellent quality wine.
His Chardonnay is produced from vines in the Robertson appellation, which has soils that are very calcium rich, perfect for growing Chardonnay. It's what helps it to develop the wonderful mineral tones that a good Chardonnay should have.
Pineapple, guava and honey are present on the nose with some floral aromas too. The wine is un-oaked in order to allow the minerality of the wine to show through on the palate. Fairly full bodied, the trpoical fruits are here too as well all a hint of white pepper. There is 8% Chenin Blanc, whole bunch fermented, to add a bit of raciness and zip to the wine.
