Fram Chardonnay 2018
Thinus Kruger worked at some rather huge cellars for years before finally opting to follow his own route. Fram wines, named after a Norwegian exploration vessel, is his means to explore the winelands of South Africa for small vineyards that can provide great fruit. So far he’s working in the Swartland, Olifantsrivier and Robertson areas (where these Chardonnay grapes come from), making wine in a cellar outside Malmesbury (ironically, another huge cellar that he rents space in). His wines are as varied as his stories, so relax, take a few sips, and tell your own.
