Appellation

Dubbed the 'valley of vines and roses', the Robertson district's lime-rich soils make the area eminently suitable for grape growing. Situated in the Breede River valley, the river is the lifeblood of this lower rainfall region. Although summer temperatures can be high, cooling south-easterly winds channel moisture-laden air into the valley. Robertson is renowned for the quality of its wines and while traditionally considered white wine territory and known mainly for its Chardonnays.

Estate

After 12 years at Boschendal Winery, Thinus Krüger decided to take his experience and direct his passions into another venture. Or, shall we say, adventure. Thinus started FRAM as a personal passion project with the intention of creating a wine that radiates almost as much personality as the winemaker himself. He makes a promise to “always sail into unchartered waters, to boldly search for whatever grapes lie behind the next hill, over the next horizon.” With FRAM, Thinus throws safety out the door to turn risk into reward, and it is this confident, audacious and intuitive spirit that makes his wines worth it. And his tremendous amount of talent certainly helps, too.
