The Boschendal 1685 Sauvignon Blanc Grand Cuvee is a melange of yellow and green tropical fruits with hints of citrus. The straw-coloured wine has an aroma of herbs and tropical fruit, with hints of lime and green fig. These complex flavours carry through to the creamy, harmonious palate adding to the mineral zesty finish.
Grapes were sourced from cooler vineyards in the Coastal Region, mostly on higher altitude (150400m) sites or very close to the ocean. Being exposed to cool afternoon sea breezes helps with the accumulation of beautiful, expressive varietal flavours in the berries and good natural acidity. Vineyards planted on different soil types are selected, resulting in wines with a bigger structure and mouthfeel.
