Boekenhoutskloof's most sought-after wine! The highly exciting and sensual cuvée offers a very wide spectrum of aromas. There aren't too many bottles of this wine. Because Boekenhoutskloof sources its “chocolate block” from special plots of various vineyards. The grapes come from hot, dry Malmesbury in the Swartland north of Cape Town. The Grenache comes from the oldest vines of this variety in South Africa, which grow in Citrusdal on very sandy soils at the foot of the Cederberge.
The Boekenhoutskloof winery was founded in 1776 and is picturesquely located in a remote corner of the Franschhoek Valley. The focus is on the Syrah grape variety. Boekenhoutskloof is a real specialist in dealing with this type of red wine and has made a name for itself under the leadership of Marc Kent.
