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.

Boschendal, South Africa
Boschendal Winery Video

Boschendal (Dutch: wood and dale) is one of the oldest wine estates and farms in South Africa and is located between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch in South Africa’s Western Cape. Boschendal is a quintessential model for holistic country living. The team's vision is that the winery's future will be as remarkable as the past. It is the people that give life to Boschendal and their dream is that this extraordinary Estate will forever be a treasured home filled with new generations who will love and care for this icon of the Cape through this century and beyond.

The farm’s title deeds are dated 1685. The estate’s first owner, Jean le Long, was one of the party of 200 French Huguenot refugees who were fleeing religious persecution in Europe. A stunning property, the Boschendal estate is crowned by the original Cape Dutch manor house, which is open to visitors, together with associated restaurants and outbuildings and visitor attractions. The estate includes the Manor House, the Verf Restaurant, a café/deli, historic gardens and luxury accommodation.

The vineyards at Boschendal cover 2.54 km between Groot Drakenstein and Simonsberg, and include substantial plantings of Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc, together with smaller plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. Contract vineyards are located throughout Western Cape, with a large concentration in the region of Elgin to focus on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

With an important wine renaissance in full swing, impressive red and white bargains abound in South Africa. The country has a particularly long and rich history with winemaking, especially considering its status as part of the “New World.” 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, South Africa is increasingly responsible for high-demand, high-quality wines—a blessing 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 brisk ocean breezes necessary for steady ripening of grapes. Similarly, cooler, high-elevation vineyard sites throughout South Africa offer similar, favorable growing conditions.

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 red-fruit-driven, spicy, earthy 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 close behind.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
