The original Cape Blanc de Noir style wine that inspired an entire category and remains a South African favourite and Boschendal Classic.

in the vineyard : Grapes were sourced from vineyards grown in a cross-section of regions and specifically selected for their ability to deliver top quality grapes year on year. To get the perfect colour for this wine the grapes were all hand-harvested, thus minimising any potential colour extraction. .

about the harvest: A healthy harvest was spread over a couple of weeks, from mid-February to the latter part of March.

in the cellar : To achieve the desired colour, most of the juice was drained directly after crushing, with some blocks receiving up to two hours of skin contact to ensure that the colour remained the precise salmon-pink hue desired. Each variety was handled separately and fermented cold at 14°C to retain the delicate aromas and flavours. The final blending of varietal wines created complexity, consistency and balance before bottling.
