Stunning wine! A very rich, appealing nose of black and blueberry aromas and hints of cigar box and tobacco spiciness. The palate is exceptionally full and round, yet precise with a crème de cassis, black currant and Cedar wood of the nose following through with notes of pencil shavings, red capsicum, tea leaf and notes of clove. Grainy tannins and a perfect acidity balance the dark berry fruit on a rich mid-palate, suggesting significant ageing protentional. The finish is smooth and complex with its offering of red liquorice, fennel and exotic spice and an impressive length.

Tim Atkin South Africa Special Report 2020 – “It’s surely
no coincidence that Boekenhoutskloof moved into its
swanky new cellar in 2018, as the quality of most of its
wines has gone up a notch. This comes from two excellent
growers on the Helderberg and is wonderfully focused,
layered and complex with some underlying grip,
blackcurrant leaf top notes and some seasoning from 5%
Cabernet Franc. 2022-30”
