Critic Reviews
94 points, James Suckling
“A lovely nose of blackberries, pipe tobacco, rosemary stem, lead pencil, and oolong. Medium- to full-bodied with silky tannins. Very expressive and vibrant, with driving acidity and fruit-soaked tannins. Structured with fine-tuned intensity and very good depth. Sustainable. Drink or hold.”

About The Winery
Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, the farm's name means 'ravine of the Boekenhout' (pronounced Bookn-Howed). The Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making- the chairs on the wine label are a nod to this history.

In 1993 the farm and homestead were purchased and restored, and a new vineyard planting program was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon, and Viognier. Today, Marc Kent is the owner, chief winemaker, and driving force behind the dynamic farm. The wines produced here are certified sustainable by the Integrated Production of Wine and Boekenhoutskloof is a founding member of the Franschhoek Mountain Conservancy.
