A beautiful blush for a summer bash!

A beautiful blush for a summer bash!

Local South African fashion and food blogger and co-founder of Orphic Fashion Tsakisani Maryluck Mondlani sampled the recently released Boschendal Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2017 vintage and immediately named it her new favourite wine. “It has a beautiful aroma, a hint of strawberries, citrus and summer fruits. The palate is especially fresh with crisp acidity and an opulent, full rounded body. It’s an outright stunning wine.”

For Mondlani, it’s the ideal vintage for festive season soirees in the summer sunshine and the perfect accompaniment to Christmas feasts. Acclaimed white winemaker Lizelle Gerber says the delicately dry blush wine joins the ranks of Boschendal’s best. “The 2017 harvest was especially pleasing, with big fruity flavours that imbued our  Chardonnay Pinot Noir with its fresh, complex finish.”

Gerber says that the wine’s process of creation makes it crisp. “Our grapes ripen in the long, cool nights and are picked in the early morning chill, ensuring an incomparable crispness.”

She adds that gentle oak maturation imparts an elegant finishing note of spice to the blend, which has outstanding finesse and versatility. The beautiful bottle lends flair to any occasion and the wine pairs well with most cuisines, making it the ideal accompaniment to a memorable Christmas gathering with family and friends.

About:

BOSCHENDAL, A TRULY MODERN WINE ESTATE

One of the most established and iconic wine estates in Stellenbosch, Boschendal has reinvented itself to appeal to a new generation of wine lovers. The estate has a farm-to-table approach to wine which encourages visitors to understand the origin of the wine, the winemaking process and taste the terroir in each glass.

Boschendal’s young winemakers are driving change by experimenting creatively while preserving traditional winemaking techniques to produce premium wines, such as the limited release Vin de Memoire Chardonnay and a range of contemporary wines, served exclusively at the Werf Restaurant.

While Boschendal exports to over 50 countries, the winemaking team endeavours to entice the palates of both international and local wine lovers with modern wines and welcomes all visitors to explore the farm, which has undergone a true metamorphosis with the addition of farm-to-table dining options, an abundant five-acre food garden and the philosophy of working sustainably with nature to produce real food.
