This iconic wine estate and pride of the Cape is situated between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. With over 333 years of winemaking heritage, 2017 marked the release of the pinnacle of Boschendal’s wine portfolio – the Boschendal Heritage Collection. To mark this auspicious event, the first two of three wines in this range of limited release, meticulously crafted red wines were made available to wine connoisseurs in 2017 - the Boschendal Grande Syrah 2014 and Black Angus 2014.

This interesting and captivating wine is Shiraz - based (59%), rounded off by Cabernet Sauvignon (25%), Merlot (11%) and Malbec (5%). 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.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and carefully sorted upon arrival at the cellar.

in the cellar : 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.
