|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
This blend showcases moderate floral aromas and pithy citrus and stone fruit flavours. Mouthfeel is slightly oily with a long tart stemmy finish. A fun blend but not my style. Overly floral wines are not my prime choice. Try with mild Thai curries. Tasted Jan 2017. @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
|Winemaker's comments: As with all Boekenhoutskloof blends, percentages may vary from year to year but the components stay the same. Deciding on the perfect blend is always interesting and challenging. This year Grenache Blanc played a supporting role in this intriguing blend. Grapes are sourced mainly from Malmesbury and Stellenbosch. Components are French oak matured, blended and bottled to present a wine that over delivers on every level.|
TASTING NOTES: The rich yet lively nose shows aromatic floral flavours of apple blossom and spice. White peach and yellow apple show on the palate, which is medium bodied and generously textured with judicious use of oak. Well balanced natural acidity with a lengthy mouthwatering finish.
