An unorthodox Bordeaux blend, minus the Cabernet Sauvignon. This generous, full bodied red wine has been produced using the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot with a touch of Merlot. Hedgerow fruits, blue berries and spice notes are intensified by velvet tannins and a touch of oak.


Early in the Boer War an inscription was scrawled on a Boer farmhouse wall: "We are bound to win this war, Kruger has 90,000 burgers, that means 90,000 Generals, and the English have 200,000 soliders but only one real General, General French."


General John Denton Pinkstone French, later Field Marshal and the first Earl of Ypres, led the cavalry charge that relieved Kimberley, where Cecil John Rhodes and Lord Baden Powell were incarcerated. He was also involved in many other epic battles with the Boers.


Over the years bitter memories have faded. Now, 110 years later, two direct descendants of President Kruger and General French have combined forces. The motto of Boer & Brit winemakers Alexander Milner and Stefan Gerber is living proof: "The war is over...let's party!"


Boer & Brit aim to transform the unconventional into the conventional by making wines that inspire conversation, debate and should be enjoyed with friends. Their dynamic and exciting ranges are structured for early consumption, or careful cellaring, and are produced in limited volumes.
