2015 Syrah, Boekenhoutskloof, Swartland

A benchmark Syrah, this has all the poise and elegance of top Northern Rhones, but with a South African twist. There’s a sense of ripeness here, alongside pepper spice and finely-judged tannins.

2015 Syrah, Boekenhoutskloof, Swartland
Boekenhoutskloof

Based in Franschhoek since 1776, Boekenhoutskloof is one of South Africa’s most feted wineries. After some years in the wilderness, the current operation was started by a group including winemaker Marc Kent in 1993 – they quickly put themselves on the map, making some of South Africa’s most expressive wines. Indeed, many would call Boekenhoutskloof the vanguard of South Africa’s new wave movement. Now it’s Gottfried Mocke at the helm, arguably South Africa’s most talented winemaker, and the wines have never been better.
