Boekenhoutskloof Porseleinberg Swartland Syrah 2017
The Porseleinberg Estate in Swartland owned by the famous Boekenhoutskloof wine brand.
Has any brand in South Africa achieved quite so much as Porseleinberg in less than a decade? This is the best vintage yet from this steep, brutal, extreme schist-rich site and that's saying a good deal. Big, bold and intense, with incredible, almost feral intensity, incense, tar and black pepper aromas and layers of inky dark fruit. A stunning wine from a stunning site, made by a gem of a winemaker.
