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: Whole bunch pressed on arrival at cellar. Settled overnight with clear juice drawn off in the morning. Barrel fermented and matured in Louis Latour French oak casks. Fully natural fermented. Maturation for 6 months, partly in concrete, partly in oak with regular stirring to facilitate integration.
TASTING NOTES: The nose is a melange of apricots, nectarines, grapefruit, honey and almond brittle. The mouth feel is beautifully restrained and the wine finishes with a lively and mineral note.
