Dalla Cia creates £250 Cape `first growth`

Bordeaux-based consultant Denis Dubourdieu has teamed up with winemaker Giorgio Dalla Cia, formerly of Meerlust, to create what is being touted as the ‘First Growth of the Cape’.

G is a new wine from the winery 4G. The initial 2010 blend of 3410 bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is selected from twelve Western Cape vineyards of 10-20 years of age with which the 4G owners have long-term contracts.

Dubourdieu and Dalla Cia are part owners of the winemaking enterprise, and are pricing bottles at a ‘first growth’ level of US$350 or £250.

Cape Klein and Wineservice Ltd are the UK distributors, with none yet for the US. The Swiss management team are private wine enthusiasts selling into Switzerland both through their company and a Basel merchant.
