Boschkloof Wines is a
small family run winery by father and son team Jacques and Reenen Borman. The
farm is 25 hectares in size and is situated eight kilometers west of
Stellenbosch in one of South Africa’s prime wine producing regions.
The Bormans believe that the process of making great wines begin in the
vineyard. The grapes are harvested by selected hand picking and it’s rare to
find hand harvested, exceptional wines at such great prices.
This is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40%
Merlot. After harvesting the grapes by hand, this rich wine is matured in
225l French oak barrels for 18 months. Certified and bottled on the
farm. A full-bodied, oak matured red wine with intense deep ruby black
colour. Ripe plum, herb, chocolate and complex toasty oak bouquet. A
concentrated middle palate with a long after-taste of blackberries and
undertones of vanilla, fruit and spice. Good to drink now, but will
continue to improve for the next 3 to 5 years.
Boschkloof is a family run vineyard in
Stellenbosch. A chardonnay created in a rich complex style with citrus, lime
and hints of apricot. Elegant aromas, integrated with subtle hints of oak
that adds to the complexity. Good fruit and balance with long lingering
finish. Enjoy now or benefit from cellaring. Best served at 13 -14C.
