Boschkloof Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2022

R140.00

A full-bodied, oak matured red wine with intense deep ruby black colour. Ripe plum, red fruits and complex perfumed oak bouquet. A concentrated middle palate with long after-taste of blackberries and undertones of spice. Good to drink now, but will continue to improve for the next 3 to 5 years.

Description

Boschkloof was purchased in 1995 and named after the natural ravine or ‘kloof’ on the farm. The land consists of rolling hills and picturesque mountain backdrops. The soil consists mostly of decomposed granite and koffieklip. The original vineyards on the farm consisted mostly of Cape Riesling, but Jacques decided to remove it and plant better-suited cultivars like Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. Today Boschkloof is most renowned for their Syrah, especially the single vineyard bottling called Epilogue. It was the first red wine of South Africa to score 98 points by an internationally acclaimed critic.

Our farming methods are approached as sustainably as possible. All the grapes are handpicked to secure the quality of fruit before they enter the cellar. A hands-off approach towards vinification takes place in the cellar to showcase the terroir and to expose a sense of place in the wines. The aim is to make timeless wines that tell a story and have a great personality within a quality bracket.
