Boschendal Heritage Collection Manumission
Please view wine facts for the current vintage below as the vintage on the image may vary.
Colour: Rich depth in colour hinting to the intense concentration and age-ability from the cool climate and small grape berries.
Nose: Outspoken dark berry pastille, cherry and plum aromas layered with spice. All three varietals deliver a variety of nuances that together deliver a complex, rich and inviting nose with the great balance between fruit and oak.
Palate: Integrated silky entry followed by a burst of pronounced cassis and dark cherry flavours etched with some tobacco spice. The hallmark characteristic is the fine integration of fruit and tannins, a balance and intensity of which was achieved by delicate blending and bringing together the best of all three varietals. The finish is elegant with a lingering fruit that lasts.
