BOSJES farm has officially launched its own range of wines at the farm situated in the Breedekloof Valley.
Since swinging open its gates to the public in March 2017, BOSJES Farm has already established itself as a must-visit destination in the Western Cape. From the curvaceous white roof of the glass-walled BOSJES Wedding Kapel to the inspired country-style cuisine in the BOSJES Kombuis, this family-owned estate beneath the Waaihoek Mountains has become synonymous with heritage, style and a joyous celebration of the good things in life.
At an exclusive tasting for the media, the new wines, comprising of a Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, a House Red and House White, revealed fresh, fruit-driven styles, rooted in clear varietal expression but with enough intensity to match food.
To make this bespoke range of house wines, BOSJES Farm turned to the expert palate of Allan Mullins. A respected wine judge and Cape Wine Master, Mullins has one of South Africa’s most experienced palates when it comes to the art of blending wine.
With a brief to create six unique BOSJES wines from local producers, Mullins hit the road, tasting his way through a dozen cellars across the Breedekloof valley.
“It was a wonderful experience and I learned so much about the wines of the Breedekloof,” says Mullins. “There are some future winemaking superstars here, but across the valley, the wines are fabulous and offer exceptional value.”
Quality and value were two of the guiding principles for Mullins when it came to whittling down his final list of cellars.
“I wanted to create wines that were typical of the Breedekloof,” explains Mullins. “I wanted wines that offered bright attractive fruit, but just as important was ensuring plenty of fresh acidity in the whites, and soft juicy tannins in the reds. These are approachable wines made for easy enjoyment.”
The wines are only available on the estate and are priced from R90-R150 per 750ml bottle, with all available by the glass (R25-R40) at the BOSJES Kombuis.
BOSJES Kombuis opens for lunch only, from Wednesdays through to Sundays. Light treats are also served at the beautiful sunken garden of the BOSJES TeeTuin.
