Full Bodied Red
Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm’s name means “ravine of the Boekenhout” (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier : Vintage and Image may vary
Pairs well with spiced red meat, stews and scasseroles, hard cheeses.
The nose intrigues with its aromas of black currant, dark cherry, graphite and exotic spice. The entry is smooth and subtle, with a firm, focused palate showing flavours of blackberry, perfumed black tea, oregano and hints of cedar. The mid-plate is linear and elegant with exquisite structure and fine-grained, supple tannins. Vibrant yet integrated acidity and a charcoal-edged texture create complexity in an exceptionally balanced wine. Blueberry, pencil lead and bay leaf linger on a fresh, precise finish with hints of cocoa.
