Bosman Generation VIII Shiraz
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: The family’s first ancestor, Hermanus Bosman, was a sieketrooster (caregiver) who worked in the Cape and played a central role in community development and social upliftment. Bosman lived by the motto of the family crest: ‘faith, hope and love.’ His progressive thinking, desire to help his fellow man, and deep respect for the harmony of nature informed everything he did, and shaped the both the future of the farm and the generations who followed.
WINEMAKING: Sorted, de-stemmed, slightly crushed grapes fermented at lower temperatures (24-26 degrees Celsius) and matured in the equivalent of 225L barrels of which a third was French new oak.
TASTING NOTE: A garnet centre with a purple rim. A confident wine with fine textures, spice, tobacco and new leather, refreshed with a delicious dark plum finish. Concentrated and complex; fresh and medium-bodied. A great food partner to robust red meat dishes such as espetada, barbecued meat and rich pasta sauces.
