The Bosman family have a history of growing wine in the Bovlei of Wellington, dating back to 1810.

This light bodied 2020 Chenin Blanc is substantial with hints of pear, peach and apple. The wine is kept on its lees and stirred to produce a wine with an intense, luscious palate and complex integrated nose. Medium to full-bodied style with a long, clean, crisp aftertaste. This is a multi-faceted food wine which will complement an array of dishes from seafood pasta to salt niçoise; grilled fish to lemon basted chicken.
