Product Details

Code: BKH001

Boekenhoutskloof is one of South Africa's most prominent wine producers, established in 1776. Located in the Franschhoek Valley it is well-known for producing premium red wines. The estate was established in 1776, and takes its name from the indigenous Cape Beech trees (boekenhout) which surround the property.

An exotic blend comprised of mainly Rhone varietals, with Syrah dominating at 64% of the blend with nearly equal amounts of Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon along with 1% Viognier filling out the blend, this has a lovely spicy captivating nose. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality.

A top note of white pepper and violets is underscored with cured meat and dark olives. The palate is medium fuller in body and quite generous offering a combo of vibrant red and dark fruits that have a smooth and fleshy texture leading to a long and impressive finish that has a savory end note. The tannins are quite refined and in perfect balance with the fruit, allowing the wine to show well young but reward several more years of cellaring.
