Notes

The Bosman family have a history of growing wine in the Bovlei of Wellington, dating back to 1810. Through eight generations they have worked hard to create a better life for all who live and work on the farm, rising to challenges and finding solutions, often in the unexpected.

Wine is made in their historic 260 year old cellar, but their approach is progressive and innovative: a plant improvement until ensures that Bosman remains at the forefront of the development of new, clean plant material and varietals; while their vine nursery ensures a continous supply of healthy rootstock and vines.'

'The renaissance of Cinsaut is upon us. I would be proud if we could reclaim it as Africana. I hope this wine will helps pave the way.' – Corlea Fourie, Winemaker and Cellar Master

Tasting notes:
'Lovely fresh berry flavours with hints of tobacco, spice and savoury notes. Luscious and concentrated although of medium body. A bold wine with an elegant structure. Fantastic wine to pair with a whole range of dishes.' – Corlea Fourie, Winemaker

Viticulture:
Bush vine vineyard called 'Heritage-Kop' on Twyfeling, Bovlei valley. Planted in 2003 this is a Cinsaut heritage site on the farm, as the previous Cinsaut planting here was in 1964. The very early harvest took us by surprise but the quality was beautiful. Due to the lower rainfall the previous winter the yields were lower but produced smaller berries with concentrated flavours.

Vinification:
This is our humble (and modern) take on what a Wellington bush vine Cinsaut might look like. Sorted, de-stemmed, slightly crushed grapes fermented at lower temperatures (24-26'C) until dry. A total of 5% of the wine fermented as a whole bunch component to add freshness and complexity. Matured in a 225L and second and third fill French oak barrels. Gently filtered.

Alcohol: 14.1%
