Style Clean and crisp
Clean, crisp and fresh with layers of tropical fruits such as pineapple, litchi and passion fruit and the extended lees contact providing for a fuller weightier mouthfeel yet still finishing in the lively bright after taste. This is a style made to be consumed with food within the first three years of production. The younger the wine, the better it will suit cold meats, anti-pastas and grilled seafood. As the wine develops, it will reward with a rich wine perfectly suited to pair with rich casseroles and saucy pastas.
Country Of Origin: 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 �migr� 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.

The trellised vineyards for this wine are planted in shale soils to provide a refreshing acidity to the palate with green harvesting providing complexity. Meticulous attention to canopy management and water supply provides the wine with the ultimate balance. Only the free �run juice is cold fermented in stainless steel tanks using a combination of wild and cultured yeasts. The wine is left on the lees for up to 100 days to full out the mid palate.
