AWARD 87 POINTS FROM WINE SPECTATOR
Fruity, floral notes, spicy with a nice density. Creamy full bodied with nice supporting acidity and delicate oak Influence.
From one of Franschhoek’s oldest farms comes this fabulous blended white wine. It has a striking aroma of fruit blossom mingling with spicy, baked apple aromas. The palate is equally as interesting with fresh green fruits, again with a definite spicy character. The ripeness of the vintage is clear on the finish, where a tropical note comes through.
67% Viognier, Chenin Blanc 19%, Grenache Blanc 14%.

Food Pairing
A highly versatile wine, with its herbaceous and lifted fruit flavours suggesting pairings with lighter seafood dishes or a creamy risotto. Will also partner spiced selections well.

The Estate
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. When the farm was founded, the Franschhoek valley was far wilder than it is today - as the wolf trap once discovered goes to show. Today, the mountains are still alive with indigenous animals, including the majestic leopard. No evidence of wolves has ever been found though, so the wine was created to remind one of the mysteries and legends of days gone by.
