2012 Boschkloof Syrah South Africa Stellenbosch image

Complex and attractive bouquet of oriental spices with typical Shiraz smoked ham and white pepper flavors. Good intense ruby color. Full mid-palate with a long soft finish. Well balanced wine with spicy type plum and berry fruit flavors and peppery overtones that finish with soft round tannins. Very classic style with unmistakable Rhone flavors. Certified and bottled on the farm. Good to drink now, but will develop and mature over the next 6 years.
