Boekenhoutskloof leaped onto the scene with an iconic, new-wave, Platter 5 star 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. 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 leading have aged with considerable grace. Just 1 000 cases where produced.
‘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, Christian Eedes, 92/100, 18/20
