DaschBosch crafts elegant wines and experimental wines whilst upholding traditional methods of wine-making and craftsmanship, since 1754, when the farm land was granted by the Governor of the Cape of Good Hope, Rijk Tulbagh. Their wines reflect the vastness of the South African landscape and reflect the decades of vines growing in one place, in the unyielding sun, the cold winter rain, the storms and winds, on a mountain, on a plain somewhere which produces these delicate but powerful wines.
Daschbosch Avon Clairette Blanche 2018
This wine is made from late ripening Clairette Blanche grapes from 41 year old vines. Grapes are hand picked in the early morning and transported to the winery where they are whole bunch pressed and settled for 24 hours. Racked to fourth-fill French oak barrels and further fermented. Thick lees contact for about six months with regular ‘bâtonnage’ then racked from thick lees with sulphur added and aged in the same barrels for a further two to three months.
