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

Wonderfully floral and spicy on the nose with tons of red plum, boysenberry and passion fruit aromas, supported by hints of flint and earth. No Gewurz here? Round and smooth in the mouth, this is a let down after the exciting set of aromas. Chunky and a bit dull and heavy on the palate, this is smooth and easy to drink on its own but is just too soft for most foods. The perfumes are killer though. 83pts

An aromatic dry blend. It is fresh and lively with a lengthy finish.
