Winter Sculpture Fair In Review

We are delighted to have returned to the Winter Sculpture Fair this year with a showcase of our most popular wines, including our classic Demi Sec Cap Classique, Chardonnay Pinot Noir, Vin de Or, and our newest Boschendal wine – Nicolas 2016.  

 

Winter Pairings for Nicolas 2016

Nicolas 2016 is a blend brimming with character, with each component outstanding in its own right which together creates something exceptional. Shiraz, a signature variety for Boschendal, adds intrigue and depth with spicy notes.
