- Other Info:
- Boschkloof was purchased in 1995 and named after the natural ravine or 'kloof' on the farm. The land consists of rolling hills and picturesque mountain backdrops. The soil consists mostly of decomposed granite and koffieklip. The original vineyards on the farm consisted mostly of Cape Riesling, but owner Jacques Borman decided to remove it and plant better-suited cultivars like Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. Today Boschkloof is most renowned for their Syrah, especially the single vineyard bottling called Epilogue. It was the first red wine of South Africa to score 98 points by an internationally acclaimed critic.
This sensational Syrah has the distinct cracked black pepper and spiced red fruit nose of the finest examples with a hint of baked earth reminiscent of the regal reds from the northern Rhône. Exceptional value for the quality.
- "Smokey, classic black fruited saddle leather with spice, smoke and a hint of fine minerals. Very good wine" - Michael Olivier, South African wine and food commentator.
