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 Old Vine Hanepoot 37.5cl 2016
This rare, complex and multi-layered dessert wine exudes aromas of honey, orange blossom and fruitcake. The palate has intense flavours of sultanas, ripe candied citrus peel and sweet mandarins.
The Hanepoot grapes for this wine are from timeworn, gnarly vines which bear a meagre yield, the vines are over 120 yeras old (South Africa only started recording vine age from 1900). Small bunches of concentrated and perfumed Muscat d’Alexandrie fruit are hand harvested, the juice fortified with a pure spirit.
