About this Item

Syrah, 2012
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. 

 
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.

Critics Ratings

(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
