The Boekenhoutskloof Syrah fruit has been sourced from a specific site in Wellington since 1998, because of the unmistakable character that the decomposed granite exhibits. The SH-21 clone was planted on this SE-facing slope in 1993 to maximise the cooling effect of the prevailing easterly wind.
Blackcurrant, cranberry, white pepper and the typical violets intensity on the nose with tarry undertones. Hints of leather and wet gravel takes the complexity of this wine to another dimension. The purity and concentration of fruit, firm structure and balanced acidity shows the massive aging potential of this vintage.
