Winemaker Notes

Blended from three vineyards within the Franschhoek Valley, and one vineyard outside Franschhoek, where the vines range between 6 to 12 years old. There was also some fruit from several vineyards outside the valley. 2003 was a cooler vintage than 2002, a better Sauvignon vintage.

Pale with hints of green. Immediate inviting nose of gooseberries and tropical fruit. Lively entry to the palate where more of the varietal characters persist. Fresh and forwards, crisp and well balanced with good mid-palate weight and generous length. Good lunchtime Sauvignon. Drink within two years of the vintage.

Porcupine Ridge, South Africa
Porcupine Ridge The Winery Winery Image

In 1652 Jan van Riebeeck, a Dutch surgeon, eager to find a way to relieve the symptoms of scurvy, suggested to the Dutch East India Company that the Cape Province of South Africa would be suitable for growing grapes. Nine years later, the first wine was pressed from grapes grown on cuttings brought from France. The prime grape growing areas of South Africa spread out from Cape Town, and include the Paarl ("pearl" in Afrikaans), which to the east encompasses Franschhoek ("French corner"), home of the first French Huguenot settlers. Boekenhoutskloof, its homestead dating from 1784, is located in the Franschhoek Valley.

Marc Kent is the winemaker for the Boekenhoutskloof wines as well as the range of wines called Porcupine Ridge. There are approximately 20 hectares of vines at Boekenhoutskloof - 25% of which are planted to white varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Viognier; and 75% of which consist of reds: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

Porcupine Ridge is a handcrafted range of wines, celebrated for its uncompromising commitment to quality. The wines carry a distinctive label featuring an original pen and ink of the crested porcupine drawn by leading South Africa wildlife artist, Zakkie Eloff. These crested porcupines inhabit the vineyards of the Boekenhoutskloof homestead.
