Tasting Notes

Beautiful colour in the glass, such elegance and class. Showing blue fruit, violets, raspberries and pepper, an earthy spin that brings out the anise and soft tobacco. Rugged pearly like tannins extend the already lengthy finish. Sublime.

More Info

The team behind Boekenhoutskloof is no less than a super group. With award-winning winemaker, Gottfried Mocke heading up a formidable new cellar, South Africa's best farmer Callie Louw in charge of vineyards and Marc Kent leading the charge, Boekenhoutskloof couldn't be in any better hands. They are truly one of the Cape's highest performing and most consistent estates.

FROM THE PRESS

“Given that 90% of its raw material comes from Porseleinberg - the other 10% comes from Boekenhoutskloof's Roundstone property - it's no surprise that this is such an impressive Syrah. Fermented with 65% whole bunches, it combines fynbos, lavender and Asian spice aromas with a palate of white pepper, barbecued meat, oregano and blackberry framed by sappy, granular tannins. World class. Drink 2025-35”
97pts Tim Atkin MW
“This is quite concentrated on the nose with dark berry fruit, bay leaf and white pepper, perhaps less floral than some of its peers. The aromatics feel tightly coiled at the moment. The palate is smooth and harmonious on the entry, with a fine structure. It is compact at the moment with cracked black and white pepper and garrigues notes flourishing toward the persistent finish. Much more backward than expected. I would cellar this for three to five years before cracking open as it’s a serious Syrah.”
