Lot 147

Boekenhoutskloof
Syrah, 2012
12 (2 x 6) 750ml
Boekenhoutskloof leaped onto the scene with this iconic, new-wave, Platter 5star 1997 Syrah and is now well established as one of the Cape's top growers. Maverick spirit, Marc Kent continues to be the driving force behind this dynamic property, co-founded by the similarly innovative late Tim Rands. The last vintage produced from the award-winning Wellington decomposed granite site before switching to Swartland fruit, this Syrah was also a Platters Guide 5* recipient.

(5*) replicates 11’s light violet whiffs & expressive plum, berry fruit & spice highlights. Trademark precision & nuanced subtlety. Dry, fine tannin partly from the older oak, 27 months. Wellington fruit, as always.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 5*

Very ripe, but pure and focused, with a range of black cherry, damson plum and cassis fruit that courses along, lined with subtle iron and black tea notes. Drives through a long, energetic finish... 200 cases imported.’ Wine Spectator (May 2015), 93/100

Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of blueberry, violet, chocolate, liquorice pastille and black pepper. A pure, vinous midweight, with a very smooth texture and a sweet oak component that contributes to its appeal. Finishes with serious building, tongue-coating tannins.’ Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com (June 2015), 91/100
