Winemaker Notes

Vibrant salmon pink with enticing crushed summer berry aromas that carry through to a soft and juicy palate bouncing with succulent ripe strawberries, raspberries and mulberries tinged with a hint of spice, finishing with great balance and freshness and fruity intensity.

A beautifully balanced fruity blend with broad drinking appeal. Best served chilled for anytime casual drinking or recommended as a great wine with oysters, charcuterie, summer salads, calamari or pork belly.

Is there a difference between bona fide rosés and blush wines? You bet and while both enjoy categories enjoy their followings, rosés have the added value of being chef friendly and made for foodies. The 2015 Boschendal Rose Garden is such a wine. I'd pair this one with a shredded roast chicken in a mix of garden lettuces and other green veggies. Faded rose color; pleasing dried strawberry aroma, delicate, fine depth; medium bodied, crisp on the palate; off-dry to medium sweet, nice acidity, well balanced; bright red fruit flavors, strawberries and raspberry notes; medium finish. (Tasted: November 25, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Boschendal, South Africa
2015 The Rose Garden Rose
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.

South Africa

The South African wine renaissance is in full swing. Impressive red and white bargains abound. South Africa has a long and rich history considering its status as part of the “New World” of wine. In the mid-17th century, the lusciously sweet dessert wines of Constantia were highly prized by the European aristocracy. Since then, the South African wine industry has experienced some setbacks due to the phylloxera infestation of the late 1800s and political difficulties throughout the following century. Today, however, it is increasingly responsible for high-quality wines that are helping to put the country back on the international wine map. Wine production is mainly situated around Cape Town, where the climate is generally warm to hot, but the Benguela current from Antarctica provides the brisk ocean breezes necessary for steady ripening. Similarly, cooler high-elevation vineyard sites offer climatic diversity.

South Africa’s wine zones are divided into region, then smaller districts and finally wards, but the country’s wine styles are differentiated more by grape variety than by region. Pinotage, a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault, is the country’s “signature” grape, responsible for earthy, gamey reds. When Pinotage is blended with other red varieties, like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, or Pinot Noir (all commonly vinified alone as well), it is often labeled as a “Cape Blend.” Chenin Blanc (locally known as “Steen”) dominates white wine production, with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc following behind.
