Product Description

  • Sauvignon Blanc - White South African Wine
  • A long, cool growing season allowed the Sauvignon Blanc grapes in the mountainous areas of the coastal region to ripen slowly, bringing concentrated flavors to the fore. Flavours of tropical fruits green figs and lime are complemented by a steely raciness characteristic of multi-dimensional wine reflecting supedb fruit quality.
  • 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 was established in 1685 and is a world famous wine estate. This best-selling Sauvignon Blanc has 8% of Semillon added to the blend to give complex fruit flavours.
  • Boschendal has a heritage dating back to 1685, when its French founders recognised the property's potential for wine-growing. Today, Boschendal maintains a rightful place as a winery of international distinction, consistently producing great wines. The Coastal Region of the Cape is an ideal location for producing high quality wines. 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.

A poor rather bitter wine.

1 stars

I will not purchase this wine again. I am left with 3 bottles which we will not drink.

A refreshing and lively wine

3 stars

a fresh and vibrant wine with excellent tropical flavours;a pleasure to drink!Almost like a New Zealand Sauvignon.

A good wine when sold at a reasonable price

4 stars

An enjoyable wine with or without food. Often overpriced, but when discounted to somewhere around £6 well worth getting a case or two.

Safe

4 stars

Boschendal Sauvignon Blanc 1685 is usually a safe purchase. The same wine was voted in the top 10 of SA Sauvignon in 2014. I have bought this year when the wine is on offer and, at that price, it's very good value. Plenty of flavour, citrus and a little zest. Good with all the traditional white wine meals but I really like it with some strong cheese.

Scrumptious Sauvignon

5 stars

This was a real find - fruity and full with a zingy back-taste. A great aperitif to drink alone or with summer food.

Lovely well made tipple

5 stars

Thought I'd try this on the strength of the maker and gold medal. Wasn't disappointed, really well made, well rounded and nicely balanced fuller tropical fruit typical of S.A. Don't expect the freshness of a NZ SB or the minerality of the old world. Well worth the £7 offer price.

Good summer wine

4 stars

A lovely wine, and a vineyard to visit in South Africa if you are there

This was the first time I tried this wine. Well it was on special. I just loved it, just a really good flavour. You will not be disappointed with this South African wine. When you taste it you know that you should be paying far more for it.
