Boschkloof Epilogue Syrah 2018
Granitic purity followed by violets. This is the best release so far with an intensity and focus that add weight and gritty granular tannins, plus a considered restraint to a classically styled wine.

400L barrels only with 15% whole bunch pressed. Reductive to start, so be sure to decant else only drink in 2020 onwards. It follows to a tight mineral palate with shy backward red fruits. Brooding with fine meat spice it is slow to evolve, needing a day or so to open up. The wine is muscular with chewy and savoury tannins whilst retaining loads of verve. There is some oak sweetness to finish that is sure to integrate. Lovely calm density at the core, the wine is fluid and will age gracefully but shows remarkable balance when young. Ambitious, accomplished and sheer class. 14% alc. – James Pietersen (10 April 2019)
