Boekenhoutskloof Sauvignon Blanc Porcupine Ridge 2012

Member Review by cyril:

Tasted by Club of 14 participants compared with 5 other Sauvignons. What the tasters have thought: Plant nose (blackcurrant bud, straw) or metal. Mixtures of mineral hint of smoke. And even a little butter. In the mouth, always herbaceous plant with the same presence on the nose. Slight smoke takes over. A little bitter citrus finish. Rather simple and lacking in tension. The wine significantly less popular in the series. Tasting date: Dec. 16, 2011 Maturity: Drink today Opinion on the maturity: A lot of fat and light body. Will not last long once the fruit of youth.

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

Pale straw in colour. Not too over-powering on the palate, crisp. Fresh, clean and grassy.
