Review: FRAM Chardonnay 2014


So, a few weeks ago while drinking my second cup of coffee in an attempt to wake up whilst also checking on my morning emails, I received a very innocent note from my favourite online retailer aka Yuppiechef. Now, I don’t know why, but when they send out promotional stuff I get this inexplicable urge to spend money.  Every product is a 'must have' (YES IT IS) and 'how could I have lived without it for so long'.  

Yes, the beast known as online-retail-therapy is real and it is here and I confess, I am a total junky.  So, you can understand my excitement when the email shared Yuppiechef’s launch of their new Mystery Mixed Case Wine offers.  There goes my budget…two of my vices combined in an irresistible surprise package. Click-click, ding dong.  Fourty-eight hours later my order arrived and I discovered an awesome new Chardonnay that I liked so much, I just had to share it.  So herewith my official first wine write-up.



FRAM Chardonnay 2014.  

Ex-Boschendal winemaker, Tinus Kruger is the 'CEO & President, grape crusher and sole employee' of Fram Wines.   His relentless search for super special grapes lead him to Robertson for this Chardonnay where the limestone rich soils are renowned for giving wines zingy minerality.  


This wine's yellow brilliance and fragrant notes of honey candescence on the nose are warm and inviting.  Lashings of juicy citrus and a refined minerality greets the palate and continue to the finish.  This lively unoaked Chardonnay is a true all rounder with personality.  There is a great balance between quirky freshness and commercial appeal.  It can be enjoyed on its own and will pair well with sushi or salt and pepper squid.


FRAM Chardonnay 2014 retails for R89 per bottle on Yuppiechef
