The Bosman family have been in the vine growing and winemaking industry for eight generations. Their forefather, Hermanus Bosman, arrived in the Cape of Good Hope in 1707. It is rather fitting then that the Bosman Family Vineyards brand would extend beyond its home base of Wellington to include their farm in the beautiful Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, just outside of Hermanus. The objective was to find a property with a cool climate and plant vines that are best suited to the environment, showcasing the beautiful characteristics that you get from a cool climate site. The mountainside farm now has forty two different varieties planted with chardonnay, sauvignon and pinot noir making up nearly 80% of the fifty four hectare under vine.
Grapes were hand sorted, destemmed and gently crushed after being transported to the cellar. Regular pump overs and punch downs assured colour extraction. Aged for twelve months in 20% new French Burgundian oak.
