Cape Winemakers Guild

Boekenhoutskloof Syrah Auction Reserve 2017

Only two barrels made. One barrel sourced from a tiny, unique parcel grown on decomposed schist soils on our Porseleinberg vineyard and the other barrel from one of the best old vineyards in Stellenbosch.

Spontaneous fermentation in concrete Nico Velo vats, 25% whole cluster and élevaged for 18 months in French barriques.

Tasting Notes: Floral notes abound on the nose, an indicator of the wine’s part Swartland pedigree; explosion of white pepper and spicy aromatics on the palate as expected from a cooler maritime-influenced vineyard.

Winemaker: Marc Kent
