About this Item

Syrah, 2001
2 (1 x 2) 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. 

 
2001 was the fifth vintage from the famous Wellington vineyard and rated 5 stars in Platter. Considered a great vintage due to moderate weather in February, the top wines have aged with considerable grace. Just 1 000 cases were produced.

Critics Ratings

'A tertiary note reminiscent of marmite on the nose which belied how youthful and intact the palate would be – concentrated red fruit, spice, bright acidity, fine tannins. Great substance and intensity (underscored by an abv of 15%) but perfectly in balance. Perfection should, by definition, be rare.’ – Christian Eedes, WineMag (2012), 18/20.

‘Very dark, with plum and blackberry fruit covered with smoky bacon, loam and coffee notes. Nice game, lavender, sanguine and mineral notes peek in on the muscular finish.’ – Wine Spectator, 92/100.
