In a nutshell:
A sophisticated, polished and quite sought after South African Syrah.
Under the expert guidance of winemaker Marc Kent Boekenhoutskloof has become a byword for excellent South African Syrah with this cuvée, which has gained something of a cult following, being the wine that really put them on the map. It's incredibly complex on the nose with powerful black fruits, black pepper, mocha, prune, leather and violets. Intense, weighty and expressive on the palate it has a broad, spicy, savoury quality that is paired against a perfect balance of well integrated oak and focused acidity.
When to drink:
A wonderfully savoury northen Rhône style wine that's drinking well now, but will also keep well unti the mid 2020s.
