Palate Profile

Boschendal (literally meaning “Bush & Valley”) was established in 1685, making it one of the oldest wineries in the New World. The land was originally granted in 1685 to the French Huguenot emigre, Jean Le Long, who sought sanctuary in the Cape. Ideally situated between the iconic areas of Stellenbosch & Franschhoek, this position allows for a variety of cultivars to flourish; showing great balance, complexity and varietal typicity.

Appellation Series Elgin Pinot Noir 2018 is translucent ruby with a youthful strawberry edge. An intricately structured wine with a delicate entry, blossoming into a poised  concentration of wild berry flavours and oak spice. Gains complexity and richness before ending with a long, finely textured finish. Drinking well already, yet promises greater integration and intrigue for up to 10 years from vintage.
