Boekenhoutskloof, Syrah, Coastal, South Africa 2012



Boekenhoutskloof, Syrah, Coastal, South Africa 2012

Elegant, refined cedar and plum aromas. The succulent, generous, ripe red fruits are counterpointed by grainy, chewy tannins. Rich, harmonious and well made.

Tasters Peter Richards MW, Sarah Jane Evans MW and Xavier Rousset MS

80% fruit from Wellington and 20% from Porseleinberg, Marc Kent’s Syrah is always one of the Cape’s best. Brambly, lightly oaked and floral, with aromas of violets and wood smoke, fine tannins and impressive underlying finesse. Elegant winemaking.
