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.
The rich yet lively nose shows aromatic floral flavours of apple blossom and spice. White peach and yellow apple show on the palate, which is medium bodied and generously textured with judicious use of oak. Well balanced natural acidity with a lengthy mouthwatering finish.
Enjoy with white and oily fish or white meats.
