“A crisp and dry wine with aromas and flavours of herbs and tropical fruit with hints of lime and fig with a zesty finish. Boschendal Sauvignon Blanc grapes are harvested next to the breezes off the cool Atlantic Ocean temper the hot summer days to produce fruit ripeness and great wine flavours. The grapes were hand picked in the cool, early morning to capture the crisp fruit flavours. The wine was cool fermented to retain these flavours. A small portion of oak matured Semillon was added to the blend to enhance the complexity of flavours.
After being established in 1865 this estate – set in the Drakenstein Valley – gained new ownership in 2013. They have since brought in a talented team. They not only ensure that the products are at an optimal, but also that it’s sustainable. While winemaking is their priority, they also strive to ensure that the valley stays lush, while supporting the local communities.
