Cellar for up to 12 years. No need to decant before serving.

Boekenhoutskloof is headquartered in a charming old farmhouse on the edge of the Franschhoek valley which was built in 1776. The modern winery was established here in 1993 when the estate was bought and fully renovated. Under the visionary leadership of owner and winemaker Marc Kent, it has now become one of South Africa’s leading producers with a focus on top quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah wines.

The grapes used for this opulent Syrah come from their two vineyards in the Swartland, Porseleinberg and Goldmine, which were chosen for their rocky schist soils. This is a particularly intense and perfumed Syrah thanks to the mineral-rich soils and cool nights which helps preserve plenty of aromatics. Marc vinifies each site separately to allow maximum control over the final blend, with each component aged in 2,500 litre or 600 litre casks for up to 18 months before bottling.

Violets, licorice, blackberry and dark plum dominate on the nose, followed by undertones of baked earth, black peppercorns, and spice from the oak ageing. On the palate there’s a silky smooth texture, firm tannins, and a generous full body with a long finish seasoned with hints of savoury black olives, cured meat and chocolate. A great wine to keep in the cellar for a bit longer or enjoy now alongside hearty red meat dishes.
