Lovely pale orangery rose colour with a soft, fruity bouquet of strawberries. A light to medium bodied wine with clean, fruity and refreshing finish. Ideal served with smoked salmon, salads or vegetarian dishes.
Boschendal's Chardonnay grows in mountainous soils under ideal conditions. Hand harvested grapes were pressed and fermented in a cool cellar to preserve the graceful citrus and tropical fruit flavours before some maturation in oak barrels giving the wine a rich texture with elegant depth and buttery dimensions.
This Chardonnay was blended from a selection of the best wines from the ultra-ripe harvest. From the start, our aim was to produce a Chardonnay with intense fruit flavour and real character utilising quality grapes.
All fruit was harvested in the early hours and the juice pressed while the grapes were still cool to help retain aroma and flavour. The wine was tank fermented with an element of quercus fragmentus which added greater weight and complexity.
The wine shows classic ripe, rich butter and tropical fruit on the nose and soft, well integrated vanilla on the palate.
Varieties: Chenin Blanc, Colombar, Sauvignon Blanc & 10% Hanepoot
THe Pavillion gazebo is one of Boschendal's famous landmarks. Like this ornate feature, The Pavillion Blanc is a wine celebrating Boschendal's magnificent natural setting, the quality of grapes and its commitment to its people, wine and food. Various white grape varietals are brought tegether for a wine that is refreshing and lingering, with ripe summer flavours of fig and pineapple. Great company with friends and food.
