The Black Angus forms part of Boschendal’s top-tier Heritage Collection. This ultra-premium, Shiraz-led blend is named after Boschendal’s prized herd of Black Angus cattle and celebrates over three centuries of winemaking heritage on this iconic farm.
This interesting and captivating wine is Shiraz-based with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec rounding off the blend.
All the vineyards are situated in the Helderberg region of Stellenbosch, close to the cooling winds of the Atlantic. The Shiraz Base of the blend is situated on a South Westerly facing slope of the Helderberg facing straight onto False Bay. The Bordeaux styled varieties for the Black Angus are situated on the North-West-facing granite slopes of the Helderberg.
These carefully selected sites yield some of the finest grapes in the region and are meticulously maintained
Boschendal Black Angus
The wine mesmerizes with a beautiful ruby colour, and first impression of berry and plum aromas layered with winter spice and roast cacao bean complexity. The entry is smooth and rich, leading to sumptuous ripe mulberry, black cherry and cassis flavours etched with black pepper and oak spice on the palate. The finish is long and moreish, with tremendous texture and lingering fruit concentration.
