2015 Boekenhoutskloof Syrah

Franschhoek, South Africa

A rich, dense-fruited, succulent Syrah but very well balanced, almost Rhone-like. It shows blackcurrant, dried cranberries and some white pepper all wrapped up in lovely fine tannins. A great pairing with rich lamb and venison dishes.

  • Franschhoek, South Africa

    Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm’s name means “ravine of the Boekenhout” (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.

    In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.
