Boschkloof is situated in the Polkadraai Hills, just West of Stellenbosch, where Jacques Borman and his son Reenen, create superb wines from their tiny 19 hectare-vineyard holdings.
Legend has it that the Holy Grail contained wine which was drank at the last supper and until this day, the quest to find this sacred vessel is still going on.
The Latin phrase “inconcessum persequor” surrounding The Grail on their emblem translates into “I pursue the unattainable” and between the slopes of the beautiful Stellenbosch valley in South Africa, the Borman family pursue to perfect the art of winemaking. Veteran winemaker, Jacques Borman strives to produce timeless wines after each harvest, leading Boschkloof on a quest to achieve the unattainable.
Complex and attractive bouquet of oriental spices with typical Shiraz smoked ham and white pepper flavours. Good intense ruby colour. Full mid-palate with a long soft finish.Well balanced wine with spicy type plum and berry fruit flavours and peppery overtones that finish with soft round tannins. Very classic style with unmistakable Rhone flavours. Good to drink now, but will develop and mature over the next 6 years.
An excellent partner for a slow roasted leg of lamb with generous amounts of rosemary and garlic.
