About the wine
This naturally sweet wine presents loads of citrus aromas, especially tangerine, with hints of tropical fruit and delicate notes of honeysuckle. On the palate it has a tremendous fruit core, an explosion of kumquat citrus, lots of concentration and good balance. This wine does not leave a cloying sweetness but finishes off with a fresh citrus zest. This wine can definitely be enjoyed now, but will create much more complex tastes and aromas if left to age for up to 10 years.
Boschendal Noble Late Harvest dessert wine comes in a half bottle (375ml).
About the winemaker
Award winning Boschendal lies half way between the Simonsberg and Drakenstein mountains, just 40 minutes outside of Cape Town. As recently as five years ago, Boschendal was in a state of ruin and disrepair with fewer than 50 employees. Five years later with the help of committed investment, Boschendal is revitalising. The company now employs 550 workers; they have planted 600,000 fruit trees (plums, pears, citrus and olives); they have started an ambitious project to regenerate soil health. Their aim is to farm ethically by improving their soil ecology and providing dignified employment that develops the potential of each person. Their core aim is to make Boschendal a place of ecological and social justice for the land, its workers and their communities.
