The Boekenhoutskloof Syrah is sourced from two properties in the Swartland. These two sites (Porseleinberg and Goldmine) have unique terroir of rocky bedrock and decomposed mica schist soils. This is only our third vintage claiming Wine of Origin Swartland and our blend comprises of 80% Porseleinberg and 20% Goldmine fruit. 

 The fruit from each site is vinified separately as each parcel shows distinctive and individual characteristics. The grapes are partially destemmed and ferment spontaneously in tulip shaped concrete tanks with a soft délestage 2-3 times a day. Once cuvaison has been completed, the wine is moved to large traditional 2 500L foudres and 600L demi-muids for further ageing for up to 18 months, depending on the vintage.

The nose shows mulberry, dark plums, blackberry and intense whiffs of liquorice and violets. The entry is savoury and earthy with the dark berry fruit of the nose following through with notes of black cardamom, sweet tobacco and cloves. The mid-palate is full-bodied, yet elegant and lithe, with grainy tannins providing good structure and integrated acidity creating exceptional balance. Flavours of cured meat, white pepper and black olives lend classic complexity. Hints of tar, aniseed and espresso linger on a fine, silky finish.

94 Points - Platters Guide

Heady scents of plums & cherries mixed with fresh violets on 2018, showing vibrant colour while lively acidity & polished tannins build on the palate. Whiffs of pepper & coriander spice, juicy texture courtesy 40% wholebunch fruit. All old oak, no distraction from fruit purity here. Swartland fruit, like 2017 (5 stars, 95 pts).
