Bosman Family Vineyards Erfenis 2016

Deep, concentrated aromas of blackberry and red fruit. The oak lends integrated spicy notes.
The flavours develop well in the glass or by decanting. Complex secondary flavours accented by lovely spicy notes from maturation in oak.

As a blend it is a wonderful wine to pair with a whole range of dishes from roast duck to spicy meat dishes. A celebratory wine for special occasions.

As human beings we tend to define our lives in terms of great events: war and peace, birth and death, endings and beginnings. This adds
structure to our lives, and gives us a benchmark by which we can measure ourselves.

The Bosman Erfenis Cape Blend is one such wine. It is a wine that commemorates, defines and sets a standard for the Bosman cellar, the
Wellington region and the Cape Winelands at large. And it has earned the accolades to prove just that.

This Cape blend contain 30% Pinotage to reflect the heritage and terroir of Wellington,” explains Corlea, “and then five of the best
barrels of that vintage.”

“In every vintage there are one or two stand-out barrels in the cellar, but they are not necessarily good blending mates,” she continues.
“So I take the best Pinotage and then I make up the blend from the best of what blends well together.” It is therefore not a wine made
every year: “We don’t try too hard, we look for the happy compatibility, the beautiful surprise, and we bottle that.”
