Boekenhoutskloof Syrah Auction Reserve 2009

The fruit for this wine was grown on Porseleinberg, an organic vineyard owned by Boekenhoutskloof. The grapes were harvested in the second week of February and chilled in a cold room overnight. Multiple hand selection was followed by de-stemming without crushing. The must was left to cold macerate for four days before the alcoholic fermentation was initiated, naturally. Alcoholic fermentation took 14 days to complete and the wine was left on the skins for a further week before pressing into a second fill Saury barrique. One racking was done at 18 months; the wine was fined, matured for a further 9 months, fined again and bottled. Tasting note: The nose offers complex notes of blackcurrant, ground pepper, nutmeg with floral undertones. The palate is textured, full and has great length with a meaningful freshness on the end as a result of the schist. Cellar until 2017.
