Boschkloof Syrah 2014

Complex and attractive bouquet of oriental spices with pronounced violet and white pepper flavours. It has lovely ripe fruit and a perfumed background on the nose. There are also lovely integrated tannins on the palate. Well balanced wine with spicy overtones and a lingering finish. Very classic style with unmistakable Rhone flavours.
