Cab Sauvignon 25%
This is the original ‘Estate Blend’ of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon that Boschendal launched in the 1980’s under the Grand Reserve label. But our winemaking team has decided to add more complexity and intricacy in the blend with the addition of Merlot and Malbec for style and sophistication.
The grapes were harvested by hand and carefully sorted upon arrival at the cellar. All 4 varietals are vinified separately and after malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, barrel maturation followed in a combination of new and older 300-litre barrels for 18 months. The wines were then blended and bottled in the new Boschendal Heritage bottle.
