Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm’s name means “ravine of the Boekenhout”. 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 svelte lady is the figurehead of Boekenhoutskloof. She is an adaptation of an early silver hallmark of the Cape of Good Hope and she carries the dove of peace and hope. Guarding over Boekenhoutskloof, she represents intrinsic quality, which is prize above all else.
Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
At first blackberries, mulberries, musk and eucalyptus with floral undertones. Tobacco, vanilla, strawberries&cream and an unmistakable minerality develops in the glass. Yet again this vineyard produced a wine with an endless backbone of acidity on the palate which is lined with a core of firm ripe tannins.
