The Oddbins Take

The De Bos Walker Bay Sauvignon Blanc is a vibrant green wine with a lime green rim. It has notes of kiwi, gooseberries and passion fruit on the nose. Beautiful mouth feel on the palate with a long fruity finish.

Establishing themselves as a leading ethical producer of premium wines, with a premium fairtrade offering from the De Bos handpicked vineyards, the Bosman Family Vineyards have a legacy of eight generations since they settled on the farm in 1798.

The farm was originally issued to French Huguenot, Philip de Royan in 1699 by the governor of the time, Willem Adriaan van der Stel. After the last batches were made on Lelienfontein in 1956, the Bosman family started to focus more on their vine nursery for business reasons. Then, after an absence of 51 years, the first wine was released from their newly renovated 250 year old cellar in 2007. The De Bosman family is devoted to making responsible, handcrafted drinks with their goal to produce wines of integrity, with pure varietal quality and origin-specific characteristics.

Winemaker Corlea Fourie says: ‘I was always intrigued by wine. Thought it was fascinating that a liquid; made from grapes [but you] could smell and taste of random things like strawberries, liquorice and chocolate! I wanted to know why. I loved physical science and biology as school subjects. I knew I wanted to do something that included those lines of study, but also knew that a lab or office wouldn't be my preferred working space. I worked a gap year in hospitality in Scotland and the rest of Britain. The social connection to wine linked up to my initial preferences. The penny dropped and here we are 15 years later. Graduated from Stellenbosch University with a bachelor in science with Oenology and viticulture as main subjects’.
