The winemaker’s aim with the Boland Cellar Sixty 40 White Blend is to create a juicy combination of cultivars rather than the more structured focus of a wine consisting of a single variety. The result is a fruitier, softer wine that is perfect for easy drinking and provides great value for money to boot. On the nose the tropical fruit from the Chenin Blanc comes through, as well as refreshing citrus from the Sauvignon Blanc. The palate shows similar notes, with guava and melon flavours as well as white flowers, fynbos honey and a twist of lime.
Vineyards are situated in the prime Cape Coastal region with varying climatic zones from where grapes were selected for our Sixty40 White Blend. The grapes were selected from two different terroirs namely the Paardeberg /Paarl and the cooler coastal area around Philadelphia. Granite soil provides a fresh minerality to the wine, while shale soil contributes to a fruity full mouth-feel.
Delicious with white meat dishes or a savoury souffle
