Friday 8 April 2011: Boer & Brit: Wines of distinction
'Once they were bitter enemies at war, the Anglo-Boer War (1899 - 1902).
The one was a Boer, the president of his country. The other a Brit, a famous general who led the relief of Kimberley.
Then: 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.
With the body of a Boer & the nose of an Englishman, you can't go wrong.'
Well, the proof of the wine will be in the glass - I will report on this experience!
I liked the label!
