100 points for the First Growth of the Cape

Let’s talk about 4G Wine Estate, a high-end boutique winery founded by a young Swiss-German entrepreneur. They produce two wines, the flagship G. and the ECHO of G. both beautifully elegant red Bordeaux-style wines. Within only five vintages, the G. has already reached cult status and is named among the great wines of the world.

In several blind tastings with wine professionals and consumers, the “G.” has won over some of the biggest names in the wine world, decorated with 100 Parker points, like Pétrus, Latour, Harlan, Grange – and is proof that the Cape can play a huge role in the global top league of fine wines.

The team behind Founder and CEO Philipp G. Axt comprised local wine guru Giorgio Dalla Cia, whose knowledge of South African vineyards is legendary, joined by the late Denis Dubourdieu: master winemaker to numerous icon wines in Bordeaux, Hermitage and elsewhere.

4G Wines’ production takes extreme attention to the detail to the next level, multiplying the amount of work done in the vineyard and the cellar, bringing quantities down to the minimum with just one goal: to make the best wine of the Southern hemisphere…. and they succeed.

The detail continues even in the packaging: each bottle is a little masterpiece of art, with beautifully designed labels by Berlin artist Sebastian Blinde, where local flora and fauna develop from year to year and tell a different story with every new vintage.

A perfect gift for any serious wine collector. To purchase, email to info@4g-wines.com
