Boschendal Harvest Report 2016.
Another very long harvest for Lizelle Gerber of Boschendal in Franschhoek. She started with the Pinot Noir for the Cap Classique base wines from the Boschendal property.
Things got into full swing a week later, on 20 January, when Sauvignon Blanc grapes arrived from Boschendal’s own vine-yards, as well as Durbanville and Stellenbosch. Chardonnay grapes followed and it was only in early April, nearly 100 days later, that the harvest ended with the arrival of wrinkled and botrytised grapes, destined to be turned into a Noble Late Harvest under the label of this famous wine estate.
