"...a seductive, beautifully defined bouquet, the pure dark cherry, boysenberry and pressed violet aromas wafting from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, astutely judged acidity and lovely cohesion. There is real elegance in this Syrah, and a classic finish. You might well mistake it for the Northern Rhône (Cornas?) if served blind. Superb." Neal Martin

Boekenhoutskloof's 2017 Syrah is a complex, brooding Rhone style red with great intensity, structure and spice. Grapes for the Boekenhoutskloof Syrah are sourced from two of the estate's properties in Swartland, which are vinified separately, so that each parcel showcases its distinctive and individual characteristics in the blend. The wine was aged for 18 months in oak.

Boekenhoutskloof (pronounced Book-n-Howed) was established in 1776 and is situated in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek Valley. Boekenhoutskloof means ‘ravine of the Boekenhout’, and 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, Sémillon and Viognier.
