Bosman Family Vineyards Erfenis 2011
By Christian Eedes, 24 June 2014
If more Cape Blends looked like Erfenis 2011 from Bosman Family Vineyards in Wellington, then maybe the category would have more of a following. A blend of 32% Pinotage, 19% Shiraz, 19% Cinsaut, 15% Cabernet Franc 15% and Merlot , there’s wide array of red and black berries plus attractive oak on the nose. Fruit forward on the palate but not facile thanks to a good line of acidity and firm but fine tannins. It’s the cellar’s flagship offering and comes with a hefty price tag of R378 a bottle but thankfully doesn’t over-reach itself.
