Fleur du Cap Premier Grand Cru!

Stumble on this bottle of Fleur du Cap Premier Grand Cru “Crisp & Dry”!!! in august, courtesy of sommelier Kayetan Meissner, whilst staying at Grande Roche in Paarl, for South African Airways 2014 Onboard Wine Selections, it is amazing how back in the days of sanctions, wine authorities allows such misnomer labeling for a generic dry white wine blends produced from multi region, district and wards.
I am sure the brainchild of Premier Cru and Grand Cru designations in France, must have rock and roll in his grave during that time!!

So good we do not see nonsense of this magnitude in the new South African wine industry!
