Boschendal Wines

1685 S&M

This blend boasts a voluptuous body of dark deep plum with a rim of warm ruby red. Notes of soft white pepper spice and dark cherries with hints of char grilled aromas on the nose are prominent. Rounded, lush plum with a rich mulberry concentration of the fruity body from the Mourvèdre opens onto the palate while softening the lively youthful spice, oak and a tease of dark chocolate of the Shiraz. This makes for a smoothly structured yet youthful and lively blend. The integrated soft tannins and unobtrusive earthiness from the light oak make for an alluring marriage of spice and fruit, with a lingering full complex finish. Aging potential for the wine of up to 5 years.
