About this Item

Syrah, 2005
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776 and since it’s modern era makeover in 1993 it has been under the guidance of maverick spirit, Marc Kent. Unafraid to experiment with the unconventional, Marc is the chief winemaker and driving force behind the dynamic farm, co-founded by the similarly innovative late Tim Rands.

Produced from a single vineyard in Wellington, the 2005 vintage won Marc the Diners Club Winemaker of the Year award in 2007 (with Crozes-Hermitage superstar Alain Graillot on the panel as international judge), by then well established as one of the top expressions of Syrah from the Cape.

Notes

Due to time constraints set upon us with the COVID-19 Lockdown no original bottle shots were taken.

Critics Ratings

'Admirable consistency, traditional styling and exhilarating fruit expression, 2005 has heady pimento spice layered with dense, tense palate, breath-taking finale.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2008, 4.5 Stars

'As part of a fine wine pairing dinner in March this year, I decanted the 2005 vintage and served it to guests 3 hours later. The wine only came to full bloom by the end of the evening, opening in the glass and showing a fantail of deep fruit and spice. Although mature now by most accounts, it is an absolute beast of a wine, retaining magnificent concentration, yet impressing with savory spice and dry grip. One of the wines of the evening in a stellar line-up.' - Higgo Jacobs, 2020
