Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Lots of dark red fruit and pepper spice. Vibrant acidity carries through onto a multi-layered rich palate with smooth silky tannins. The integration of oak spice and tannin add depth and complexity.
Great with steak!
Once they were bitter enemies at war, the Anglo-Boer War. The one was a Boer, the president of his country. The other a Brit, a famous general who led the relief of Kimberely. President Kruger and Field Marshal French… they died as enemies.
Now, more than a hundred years later, two direct decendants have joined forces. Stefan Gerber a great, great grandson of Paul Kruger and Alexander Milner a great, great grandson of John French have, together, created Boer & Brit, wines so intense and genuine as the battle their ancestors fought long ago.
The Boer, is Stefan Gerber, great-great grandson of President Paul Kruger, with a massive passion for Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Mediterranean varietals.
The Brit, is Alex Milner, wine-maker at Natte Valleij (after stints in the South of France and India) and great-great grandson of Field Marshall French - who led the “Relief of Kimberley” - with a passion for Petit Verdot, Bordeaux-blends and anything odd.
110 years ago, these two best friends (they met at Stellenbosch while studying viticulture & oenology) forefathers were bitter enemies and now they’ve combined to make wines for all the people of South Africa (and the world) to enjoy.
