Tasting Notes

Rising to prominence in 1997, Boekenhoutskloof is one of South Africa’s most celebrated wineries. Establishing itself as an international wine icon with a devoted cult following, Boekenhoutskloof’s wines produced are highly sought after and available only in tiny quantities. Porseleinberg is a new project from Boekenhoutskloof co-owner Marc Kent that takes viticulture to the extreme limits. Composed of a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, Porseleinberg is implicitly modelled on traditionally-made wines from the Rhône Valley, fermenting grapes with the stems in concrete vats, and then ageing the wine in concrete eggs and large wooden foudres. In addition, the vineyard is certified organic, fermented with naturally occurring yeasts and produced using minimal sulphur additions. The result is one of South Africa’s most exciting and talked about reds. Youthful, smoky and brooding on the nose, imposing aromas of dark berry fruit and plums merge with savoury, earthy notes of pepper, tar, meat and herbs. Weighty and incredibly concentrated, this layered and youthful wine is perfectly balanced by fresh acidity and supple tannins. Long and evolving on the palate, a structured and tight finish suggests that this wine will age wonderfully well over the next 15 years and beyond. An incredibly limited release, it would make a fine addition to any wine collection.
