Generations of Bosman’s in the Bovlei, are easily matched by generations of workers who have passed down traditions, knowledge and names.
The ‘Kabinet’ vineyard, aka Cabernet Sauvignon, was always considered the farm’s trump card. Guaranteed to lift the quality of any wine, nowadays it is blended with the grapes from other vineyards in the Bovlei to create a wine which is as rich and complex as the farm’s heritage.
Eyes: Deep berry red with a purple rim.
Nose: Elegant raspberry, blackberry and concentrated plum aromas. Slight pencil shaving notes.
Pair with lamb casseroles, hearty stews or rare roast beef. A serious wine, true to its cultivar, to be enjoyed at special meals and occasions.
Mouth: Beautiful mouth feel with a long fruit-crammed, persistent finish. Tannins are
subtle and accessible.
Recommended food pairings: AGEING To be enjoyed 5-7 years after the year of vintage and for up to 15 years thereafter.
Winemaker: Corlea Fourie
Growing conditions: From vineyards planted on deep red shale soils, and others planted on decomposed granite. This gives us a wonderful blend of rich succulent fruit characters and a lean minerality.
Winemaking notes: The berries are sorted before cold soaking, then the must is kept cool for two days followed by fermentation at relatively low temperatures. Punch-downs and pump-overs make for good colour extraction where after the wine spends 18 months maturing in small French oak barrels.
