Lemon zest, white peach, roasted spice on the nose with dominant floral notes that just adds to the lifeliness of this wine. The palate shows tremendous complexity with cassis, citrus, a chalky minerality and a gripping waxy mouthfeel. It shows a remarkable structure and tight mineral acidity underneath its weighty texture accentuated by the extended lees contact.
Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for making fine furniture. Our Boekenhoutskloof label features seven chairs; amongst them the country-style split splat chair made in the neo-classical style with a shouldered top rail and thonged seat from the late 18th century. Then there’s the Sandveld chair that has two back rails and a thonged seat which made its appearance in the second quarter of the 19th century. The transitional Tulbagh chair was made in the late 18th century, it has a plain back and a shaped top rail with half-round opening. The chairs on our wine label all pay tribute to the skills of the 18th century craftsmen and their achievements in creating beauty from natural sources, just like the pursuit of fine wine-making.
