About this Item

The Journeyman, 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.

This was the debut release of this Bordeaux blend and it is still full of elegance and poise after nearly 15 years.

Critics Ratings

‘Gorgeous aromas of freshly brewed Kenya AA coffee, cedar and warm, shaved vanilla lead to a supple, focused beam of red currant, plum sauce, mineral and sanguine notes. Long and very fine-grained, with a lingering hint of mesquite that stretches out the alluring finish. 120 cases made.’  -Wine Spectator, 94/100
