Boekenhoutskloof Syrah Franschhoek Valley 2007

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, with the Syrah consistently being awarded the accolade of best Syrah from South Africa. Here we find judicious use of French oak barriques and progressive wine making practices. The Syrah comes from Malmesbury with its unique growing conditions and dryland farmed vineyards to ensure deep-rooted vines and therefore optimal concentration of colour, flavour and tannin structure. It has typically spicy and peppery notes with underlying violet and perfumed aromas. Blackfruits, raspberries and hints of blossom erupt on the nose, preceding spicy and wonderfully aromatic flavours in the mouth. There is great tightness on the palate suggesting that this wine will definately reap the rewards of good cellaring. The oxidative and artisinal approach in the cellar leads to a wine which is not driven by primary fermentation esters and oak but rather developing secondary and tertiary characteristics. However, the elegance and texture of this wine makes it accessible at an early stage.

The 2007 Syrah shows intense depth of fruit with delicate texture and well-integrated tannins. The nose is explosive with black fruit, raspberries and hints of blossom. A spicy, aromatic profile develops with some age. The elegance and texture of this wine make it extremely accessible at an early stage
