Boekenhoutskloof Sémillon Franschhoek Valley 2008

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. Here we find judicious use of French oak barriques and progressive wine making practices. The grapes for this superb Semillon undergo an intensive sorting process in the vineyard to select the bunches that were concentrated by Noble Rot. The resulting wine boasts a vibrant, complex and intense nose, expressing citrus and melon amongst an array of other exotic fruit with underlying floral tones and hints of hazelnut. It is densely layered with incredible texture, in perfect balance with a lifted acidity and finesse. A vibrant white such as this is ideal to pair with mildly spiced asian cuisine, for example Thai, Indonesian or Vietnamese - particularly fantastic with prawn curries.

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
