Winemaker Notes

This straw-colored wine has an aroma of herbs and tropical fruit, with hints of lime and green fruit. These complex flavors carry through to the creamy, harmonious palate adding to the mineral, zesty finish. Ready to drink now and the ideal partner for smoked fish, seafood, and creamy poultry or veal dishes.

A blend dominated by 92% Sauvignon Blanc with 8% Semillon. Grapes are from vineyards planted on decomposed granite, stoney clay soils and rich alluvial soils, at altittudes ranging from 150-400 meters above sea level.

Wine Enthusiast
This zippy, fresh sip starts with tropical fruit and citrus aromas, followed by balanced citrus and asparagus flavors. All of it dances on a racy acidity. An elegant, world-class white.

Boschendal, South Africa
Dramatically set against the majestic backdrop of the Groot Drakenstein Mountains in Franschhoek ("Little French Corner"), Paarl, South Africa. Boschendal is one of the oldest wine producers in the New World with a French viticultural heritage dating back to 1685.

The farm "Bossendaal" (wood and dale) was granted in 1685 to French émigré Jean le Long by the governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel. Le Long was one of the many Protestant Huguenots who fled from France to escape religious persecution after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, bringing considerable winemaking skill to the region. Boschendal was the first French Huguenot wine farm established on the Cape and the second wine farm overall.
