Star-bright with a lovely pale straw colour, the 1685 Sauvignon Blanc Grande Cuvée is an elegantly dry wine, rich in complexity. A lovely herbaceous character is enhanced by tropical fruit aromas, creating a harmonious palate. Expect to encounter pronounced notes of zesty lime and green fig that perform on a creamy palate. The wine finishes on a dry, flinty note that rounds off with exquisite complexity. The 1685 Sauvignon Blanc Grande Cuvèe should be enjoyed in its youth to best experience its fruity flavour profile.
This character-driven white is an ideal companion to smoked fish, goat’s cheese and seafood dishes.
Boschendal Wine Estate has a deep wine making tradition that dates back to 1688. This tradition has evolved to help create some of the most positively reviewed wines in the region. Boschendal's 1685 range is presented in a unique curvaceous bottle inspired by the traditional bottle design used through the ages and commemorates the year of the original title deeds. These wines express the style and class that is particular to our estate and coastal surrounds, with special focus on purity of fruit lavished with measured modern wine making for depth, breadth and balance.
