Boschkloof, Epilogue 2019

RRP £288.00 for a case of six

This offering comes from a single vineyard in the Polkadraai Hills, the Epilogue vineyard, planted by Syrah specialist Jacques Borman in 1996; now his son Reenen is delivering on its promise. The winemaking is intensely detailed (many pickings for complexity, plus separate ferments), with a focus on building texture: 50% whole bunch, with 25% in new 400-litre oak barrels and the rest in concrete egg. Seductive Syrah perfume of violets and black roses, dried herbs, tilled earth and tapenade. On the palate, the deep, black fruit is both succulent and fresh, with a saline acid and nervy core. The finish is nicely dry and savoury.
