100% Chenin Blanc. Our sunny, well-drained farms in the Bovlei Valley are extremely well suited to cultivate Chenin Blanc. Some grapes are harvested from young, fruit-driven sites and others from older vineyards which express elegance. The wine is kept on its lees and stirred to produce a wine with an intense, luscious palate and complex integrated nose. Crisp and refreshing, with notes of peaches and honeydew. Medium-bodied and voluptuous, with a long, clean finish. This Chenin will pair well with light pasta, seafood, grilled/roasted chicken, vegetable dishes, and is perfect on its own.
Steeped in history and tradition, the 8th generation Bosman Family Vineyards is one of South Africas oldest and most established wineries. Situated in the shadow of the Limiet Mountains near Wellington in the Western Cape, Bosman Family Vineyards continues to build upon a proud family legacy. Producing exceptional quality, hand-crafted wines from specially selected vineyards from their farms in Wellington, Hermon & Hermanus epitomizing their distinct values and the extraordinary place they call home. The rich history of Bosman Family Vineyards is a testament to the familys commitment to people, the land, and of course, the art of winemaking.
The Lelienfontein Estate, originally issued to French Huguenot, Philip de Royan in 1699 by then-Governor, Willem Adriaan van der Stel, was settled by the first generation of the family in 1798. The familys first ancestor, Hermanus Bosman, was a sieketrooster (caregiver) who worked in the Cape and played a central role in community development and social upliftment. Bosman lived by the motto of the family crest: faith, hope and love. His progressive thinking, desire to help his fellow man, and deep respect for the harmony of nature informed everything he did and shaped the both the future of the farm and the generations who followed.
The Lelienfontein Estate produced wine up until 1957, when the family turned their focus to their vine nursery. In 2007, the Bosmans returned to the long-held family tradition and released the first wines from their newly renovated 260-year-old cellar.
Today, the descendants of Hermanus Bosman are proud custodians of both his land and his legacy, devoted to responsible, handcrafted winemaking.
