Jacques Borman's 2013 CWG Auction Wine

Boschkloof  Auction Reserve Syrah 2011100% Syrah Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

This Shiraz is made in a modern Rhône style. In 2010 my son Reenen returned from working in the Rhône with a lot of new ideas. The wine was harvested by hand, sorted and fermented naturally in 500 litre open top barrels. A small percentage of whole bunches were added. The wine had a long skin maturation of 25 days and only free run juice was used. Aged in second fill 225 litre French oak barrels for 19 months.

Tasting Notes: This wine shows beautiful violets and perfumed spice. On the palate the wine is very elegant but still highly concentrated with a lot of depth. Some lovely freshness on the palate that will give the wine great aging potential. The wine has a very long finish. I believe this is a great Shiraz.
