2017 Epilogue, Boschkloof, Stellenbosch

A spectacular wine from Reenen Borman. Dark mulberries and pepper spice, and so much silky energy, too. This is so fine and pure, and volume of fruit on the palate is really very impressive.

TASTING NOTES

What can I say? After scoring 98 points for two previous vintages of this world-class wine, Reenen Borman has gone one better in 2017. First produced in 2012, Epilogue just keeps improving. Made entirely with the SH99 clone, it's intense, concentrated yet beautifully balanced, with notes of fynbos, pine and blackberry fruit and subtle 15% new wood complemented by 20% whole bunches.
