By , 7 April 2023

Boschkloof Syrah 2021
Price: R270
From various vineyards planted to clones SH21 and SH99. Approximately 15% whole-bunch fermentation. Matured for 14 months in barrel, 10% new. Alluring aromatics of red and black berries, orange, violets, herbs and white pepper while the palate is pure and fresh with crunchy tannins. A seductive wine with great fruit expression. Alc: 14%. Total production: 12 000 bottles.

CE’s rating: 93/100.

Boschkloof Epilogue Syrah 2021
Price: R850
From a single vineyard approaching 30 years of age planted to SH99 on granite. 65% in concrete (this portion entirely whole-bunch fermented), 35% in new oak and 5% in older oak. The nose is beguiling with notes of black berries, olive, herbs, lavender, sage and pepper while the palate is vivid and vital – great fruit concentration, bright acidity and firm but fine-grained tannins. Pure and precise – has a real succulence about it without any trace of sweetness. The intricacy of flavour and structure is captivating, the wine still tightly coiled – almost impossible to resist now but should drink magnificently from 2025 to 2029. The best vintage of this rightfully acclaimed wine yet. Alc: 13.5%. Total production: 4 000 bottles.

CE’s rating: 98/100.
