Vinification Details

  • Cold soaking of the fruit takes place for 24 hours to allow maximum colour extraction. The juice is then fermented with specially selected wine yeast until the wine is dry. Maturation is done in French Oak barrels for 18 months, after which the wine is carefully blended and bottled.

History

  • 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.

Regional Information

  • 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.
