- In stock, ready to ship
The Bosman family have a history of growing wine in the Bovlei of Wellington dated back in 1810. Through 8 generations they have worked hard to create a better a better life for all who live and work on the farm, rising to challenges and finding solutions, often in the unexpected.
Wine is made in their historic 260 years cellar, but their approach is progressive and innovative: a plant improvement unit ensures that Bosman remains at the forefront of the development of new, clean plan material and varietals; while their wine nursery ensures a continuous supply of healthy rootstock and wines.
WINEMAKING: The base wine was whole bunch pressed at a low sugar level to enable a second bottle fermentation. This wine was barrel fermented and then left on the lees for 6months, spending another 8 months in tank prior to bottling. Second fermentation commenced in the bottle and the wine was matured for a further 42 months before disgorgement. A small portion of the wine was made from Chenin Blanc grapes that were left to dry naturally in the sun, adding a natural sweetness for balance and complexity.
TASTING NOTES: PALATE: A tantalizing mousse releases a vibrant mix of fruity flavours ending with a clean, integrated after taste.
NOSE: A wine finely balance between generosity and restraint with aromas of Granny Smith apples and fine notes of dried peach and honeyed brioche.
