About this Item

Syrah, 2015
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Under Marc Kent’s guidance, Boekenhoutskloof purchased a small piece of land just past Riebeek-Kasteel in the Swartland back in 2009 and placed winemaker Callie Louw in charge. This Swartland site is fast gaining recognition as one of those special places to farm and produce Syrah. Showing complete dedication, Callie Louw and the Boekenhoutskloof team produce one wine from this address. The vineyards, located on extremely dry and schistous mountains, have been in Callie’s care since the get-go and he only produces a single-vineyard Cape Syrah under the Porseleinberg name.
Winemakers personal tasting note:

'A standalone vintage. Balance between power and finesse. Same upfront fruit and spice as the 2014 vintage with more depth and concentration. The signature fresh tannin is very well integrated with the weight and concentration of the wine. Still a bit reductive, drink from 2020 onward.' - Callie Louw

Critics Ratings

'Sometimes you have to remind yourself how recently this amazing site was planted, making its first wine in 2010. But what a wine this is. If it grown in the Rhône, it would sell for twice the price or more. It’s the Cornas of the Cape: compact, savoury and deeply coloured, with layers of dark, inky fruit, spicy tannins and a combination of freshness and understated power. Drink 2020-32' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2017, 97/100

'Sophisticated, like its minimalist embossed label. Cerebral Syrah from a special Swartland site, hands-off, whole-bunch natural vinification. Riveting perfume, supple palate, fine muscularity. One year in large older oak, 10% in concrete 'egg' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2018, 4.5*
