Boekenhootskloof Experimental White Blend 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The top wines from Boekenhoutskloof are made in tiny quantities and have a fanatical following. Canny customers buy early to avoid disappointment. The estate wines are always in the premier league, a consequence of Marc’s passion and keen eye for quality. Imagine a mixture of a white Hermitage, a mature white Bourdeaux, throw in some floral aromatics from the Viognier, and a lot of oak - yet this wine is so much more. Amazingly, this wine manages to retain its balance, and it is complex and elegant, if unusual white. This experimental blend is bound to spark debate and would be an ideal talking point at a dinner party.

The farm of Boekenhoutskloof wasoriginally granted to Huguenot settlers in1776. For two hundred years it remained in the same family. Over the two centuries they engaged in agricultural activities as diverse as tobacco, fruit, cattle and ultimately wine production. The original owners ceased wine production in the 1940s. The existing partnership re-opened the winery for production in 1996. Lead by Cellarmaster Marc Kent (South African Winemaker of the Year, 2007), the Winery is now regarded as one of SA’s top producers. Boekenhoutskloof is a Syrah specialist, with its premium range selling out on release each vintage. The Chocolate Block, a Syrah based blend, is probably the most successful new offering to come out of SA in the modern era. Boekenhoutskloof is acknowledged by Robert Parker’s Wine Buyer’s Guide and The 2009 Wine Report as South Africa’s # 1 producer. Read less
