1685 Over 300 years of winemaking. The legend of Boschendal's wines goes as far back as 1685. Only grapes from specially selected vineyards in the mountainous areas of the coastal region are used to make Boschendal Shiraz. The elevated vineyards produce low yields to ensure great fruit quality. The style is classic, with the wine maturing in French oak for 14 months. The result a wine with deep black fruit flavours, and elegant structure and notes of exotic spice.

History Boschendal has a heritage dating back to 1685, when its French founders recognised the property's potential for wine-growing. Today, Boschendal maintains a rightful place as a winery of international distinction, consistently producing great wines.
