The 2011 Syrah undergoes malolactic in barriques raised for 26 months in second-fill French oak barriques and 28% in foudres. The bouquet is tightly wound at first, but soon unfolds to offer scents of raspberry preserve, undergrowth, white pepper and touches of white fennel. The palate is very well-balanced with a crisp line of acidity. This feels vibrant and full of energy in the mouth, the tannins supple but with complex white pepper, fennel, sage and rosemary notes toward the very Northern Rhone-like finish. Superb, but grace it with a couple of years in bottle.

Wine maker notes
Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for making fine furniture. Our Boekenhoutskloof label features seven chairs; amongst them the country-style split splat chair made in the neo-classical style with a shouldered top rail and thonged seat from the late 18th century. Then there’s the Sandveld chair that has two back rails and a thonged seat which made its appearance in the second quarter of the 19th century. The transitional Tulbagh chair was made in the late 18th century, it has a plain back and a shaped top rail with half-round opening. The chairs on our wine label all pay tribute to the skills of the 18th century craftsmen and their achievements in creating beauty from natural sources, just like the pursuit of fine wine-making.
