Wine tasting notes

A classic nose shows red plums, cranberry, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg at play with intriguing whiffs of rosemary, thyme & oregano. The wine is lithe and elegant with an exceptionally smooth midpalate and plush, silky texture, showing darker berry fruit flavours with fine grained, supple, integrated tannins and balanced acidity. Subtle hints of mocha and dark milk chocolate linger on a vibrant finish.

Winery information

Boekenhoutskloof

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 Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.

In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.

Vinification notes

Grapes for our Porcupine Ridge Merlot are sourced from the Helderberg area and surrounding Stellenbosch vineyards. Vineyard parcels with balanced yields and particular soils (mainly decomposed “koffieklipˮ) were selected to accentuate the dark berry fruit character, which we strive for in this wine.
