THE LIBATIOUS GEM
BOSJES, Breede Valley This family-owned farm at the base of the Waaihoek Mountains made a big impression when it opened last year, thanks in large part to its glass-walled chapel, whose curvaceous roof is an architectural marvel and one of the first things you see as you enter the estate. Comprising luxury accommodation, hiking trails, a tea garden, bistro-style restaurant and Delft-inspired tiled wall mural by artists Michael Chandler and
Lucie de Moyencourt, the farm is a unique destination off the beaten track. Now BOSJES has added to its already impressive offering with a range of house wines created by Cape Wine Master Allan Mullins.
‘I wanted to create wines that were typical of the Breedekloof,’ says Mullins, who visited cellars across the valley to source cultivars. The result is six exceptional wines, each with its own distinct flavour profile. There are the two house blends, which consist of a Cabernet Sauvignonbased red and a Chenin Blanc-based white, and four single-cultivar wines that showcase the quality of winemaking in the valley. From the Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc to the Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘these are approachable wines made for easy enjoyment,’ says Mullins. BOSJES wines are only available on the estate, and can also be enjoyed by the bottle or glass at the BOSJES Kombuis restaurant. bosjes.co.za
