Boschendal, Fore!

Boschendal wine estate, founded by golfer Gary Player, finds itself in an idyllic south African location.  It's northeast of Stellenbosch; south of Paarl.

I was pleasantly surprised by Boschendal's "Le Pavillion" Chardonnay-Semillion, 2004 ($9).  In my estimation, this is the perfect under-ten-dollar wine:  fresh, crisp, and food-friendly & flexible.

Boschendal "Le Pavillion" Chardonnay-Semillion, 2004 ($9)

  • 80% Chardonnay & 20% Semillon; from South Africa's Boschendal valley
  • Lemon-gold color
  • Zesty mineral scents along with tart apples & citrus
  • Very simple and refreshing in the mouth.  Light-bodied with tart flavors

***.5 (3.5 stars out of 5)

An easy going, well-made value-priced wine
