Other Info:
Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm's name means "ravine of the Boekenhout" (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.

Spicy with fruit blossom flavours, followed with a well textured palate and balanced acidity. The wine has a lingering aftertaste with subtle wood flavours. A friendly style, displaying melon, green almond and anise flavours, with nice weight hanging through the bright, rounded finish.

Press:
South Africa's reds are improving all the time –and it makes some mighty good single-varietal whites, but its most reliable wines are the white blends. This good-value example, made by the highly regarded Marc Kent, moulds the apricot and honeysuckle of viognier and the fresh apple bite of chenin blanc, plus a little grenache blanc for weight, into a fleshy but refreshing whole.

Food match:

We've found that full flavoured South African white blends like this one match very well with marinated chargrilled artichokes.
