What the critcis say:

 

96 Points | Tim Atkin MW

It's surely no coincidence that Boekenhoutskloof moved into its swanky new cellar in 2018, as the quality of most of its wines has gone up a notch. This comes from two excellent growers on the Helderberg and is wonderfully focused, layered and complex with some underlying grip, blackcurrant leaf top notes and some seasoning from 5% Cabernet Franc. 2022-30

 

18.50 / 20 Points | Matthew Jukes

Plush and packed with cassis, this is a tremendously flashy wine with deep wells of liqueur-like fruit coupled with strident oak and a lovely bright, dry finish. Yearning to be set free, BCSS is like a prize-fighter itching for the bell so it can launch itself at its opponent. This is an amazing Cabernet and while it has the stuffing to go deep into the later rounds, I love its toned flanks and glistening musculature right now.

Boekenhoutskloof

"The wine that launched the modern Syrah revolution in South Africa"

- Tim Atkin MW 

Boekenhoutskloof is one of the huge success stories of South Africa. Spearheaded by Marc Kent who was instrumental in the ‘Swartland revolution’ placing the region and South African Syrah on the global fine wine map. In 2015, Marc was joined by Gottfried Mocke who helped push the boundaries even further. Tim Atkin MW awarded Gottfried the coveted South Africa's Winemaker of the Year in 2020 placing him amongst the country's best such as Eben Sadie.
 
All four wines speak for themselves with a distinct personality. Boekenhoutskloof’s Syrah has been accredited to launching the modern Syrah revolution in South Africa. It’s been described as “hermitage-like” and a wine “with its feet firmly planted in the earth while its head is in the clouds such is the scale and majesty of its posture” (Matthew Jukes MW). Boekenhoutskloof’s produces two Cabernet Sauvignon’s, one from Stellenbosch, the other from Franschhoek with the terroir of the former described as “the Pauillac of Stellenbosch” by Tim Atkin MW. Both Cabernet’s are classy sophisticated and comparable to great Bordeaux. The Semillon is world-class and incredibly unique having been grown from vines with over 100 years of age. Beautifully yellow in colour with complexities of orange marmalade, flint, waxy lees, and oak. The wines are consistently being awarded high scores by Platters Guide, Tim Atkin, and Vinous.
