Porseleinberg Swartland 2017
Porseleinberg is home to a groundbreaking Cape Syrah that exemplifies the essence of terroir-driven, authentic wine. The extremely rugged and dry schistous mountain doesn’t invite easy viticulture, but of course, extreme terroir produces extreme wine!
This revolutionary long-term project by Marc Kent of Boekenhoutskloof brought in Callie Louw as the farmer and custodian of this special vineyard. Organic and biodynamically farmed fruit. Uncomplicated wine growing is followed-up by minimal winemaking: 100% whole-bunch and fermented in concrete, the wine undergoes élevage in a combination of Concrete Eggs and Foudre. The resulting single-vineyard wine is generally regarded as one of Swartland's finest. The lively, expressive fruit is both rich and fresh, with immaculate clarity.
