Tasting Notes

Sorry - this has sold out - we are trying to see if we can get more stock. Since their 2010 maiden vintage, this Syrah has had a meteoric rise to fame. Owned by Boekenhoutskloof's Marc Kent and with incredible winemaker Callie Louw at the helm, this has been dubbed as a “Cape Cornas” by Tim Atkin – it’s an extremely special and age worthy wine. Every year, the scores seem to get higher and higher and this vintage is no exception with this stunning wine winning one of only two 100 point scores given out at by Tim in his annual SA report.

More Info

'In the right hands, great sites produce great wines. Since its inception in 2010, Porseleinberg has been one of the Cape's most exciting reds, but nothing quite prepared me for the transcendent brilliance of this wine. Influenced by some time spent at Domaine Jamet in Côte Rôtie - particularly their use of a submerged cap during fermentation - Callie Louw has made a stunning Syrah, proving his skills as both a farmer and a winemaker. In 2018, the style has shifted, away from power and grip to something more scented and refined. Focused, nuanced and very delicately oaked, with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, clove and white pepper spice and textured tannins. Simply world class. 2023-35' Tim Atkin MW
