The Boschendal Syrah Reserve Collection displays an intense and dark ruby red colour. This wine is an excellent combination of all things dark red, purple and black. The primary impression on the nose is that of ripe red fruit, plums and cherries, with the background filled with vibrant brown oak spice. The palate is still very young and lively, brilliantly combining the elegant and juicy fruit of the Shiraz with the more masculine firmness and length of the Cabernet Sauvignon. A seamless integration of oak spice and oak tannin adds real depth and complexity to the wine. It’s simply so smooth it’ll have you wanting to purr ‘Syrah’ with a faux-French accent.
