INSIDER'S PICK: 2021 BOSMAN FAMILY VINEYARDS CABERNET SAUVIGNON WELLINGTON 'GENERATION 8' $16.99
South Africa is consistently a great source of value and quality in their wines, but is also growing to develop a strong progressive culture both in the vineyards and the society at large. Scholarships to promising native African students has provided strong involvement in the sciences and agriculture, bringing outstanding new voices into the industry, including some of the most important female figures in the business. The Bosman Family Vineyards are in their 8th generation at their Wellington farm, with the winemaking primarily female led and based in both environmental sustainability and social responsibility. This is a winery that truly practices what it preaches, and the value of the wines do not suffer for it in the least. A little quiet on the nose at first, the aromas get rolling after a few minutes in the glass with lots of dried cherry, raspberry and dusty cocoa with very little oak presence. The palate is very pure and naturally earthy, not to the point of mirroring Bordeaux but with the skin tannin bringing out the drier fruit notes and leaving a persistent dark finish. Excellent daily drinker that will go well with all sorts of hearty meals, and shows well the next day if you want to split it into two nights of fun.
