Boschendal Cabernet Sauvignon
Agriculture and a simple farm lifestyle is at the heart of Boschendal – one of the oldest farms in South Africa. Founded 1685, the farm has grown with the passing centuries into a cherished source of wholesome produce, great wines and happy memories.
Boschendal’s Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from vineyards in the cool, coastal Faure region of Stellenbosch, as well as the Helderberg, planted on soils typically derived from decomposed granite and so-called Table Mountain sandstone.
On the nose: the primary impression on the nose is ripe black fruit with subtle oak spice and herbs, yet vibrancy and depth in its fruit expression.
On the palate: the palate expresses the vintage by bringing together the masculine firmness and length of the Cabernet Sauvignon with a juicy, yummy, fruit core. A seamless integration of oak spice and oak tannin entwined with the Cabernet masculinity adds real depth and complexity to the wine.
