Cape Winemakers Guild

Boschkloof Auction Reserve Shiraz 2006

Winemaking Notes The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness. Natural fermentation with maturation on skins for 21 days. No press juice was used, only free run. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wine matured for 19 months in 95% French oak and 5% American oak. Tasting Notes Deep, dark in colour. Lovely, ripe berry and white pepper with a hint of violets and oriental spice. Supple savoury tannins. Soft long-finish and a great food style wine showing good ageing potential.

Winemaker: Jacques Borman
