Die Verlore Bokooi n.v. x6

Winemaker: JD Pretorius
Bottles: 4,500
Blend: Syrah 46%, Merlot 42%, Cabernet Sauvignon 6%, Petit Verdot 6%

Age of vines: 18 years                    

Yield (t/ha): 8  

°Balling at harvest: 24.2 – 25.8               

Alcohol (%/vol): 12.78%

Total acid (g/l): 5.3                             

Residual sugar (g/l): 1.9

pH: 3.66                           

Total SO2 (mg/l): 92

Vinification: All four varieties underwent separate natural fermentations in open top containers. The berries were punched down gently twice a day and basket pressed after about 3 weeks. The wine was aged in small, older French oak barrels to preserve fruit purity and lightly fined before bottling in November 2018.

Tasting notes: Lighter than the 2016 release; the nose starts with fresh cherries, musk and notes of eucalyptus and cedarwood, supported by the balanced acidity of midpalate. Elegant finish with hints of white pepper and roast beef. A wine for all occasions - this Bokooi hits the sweet spot between elegance, complexity and drinkability.

Note on the label: Our logo was inspired by the unique cross stitch embroidery samplers by Riza Coetzee that grace the walls of the Lowerland farmhouse. Die Verlore Bokooi’s cross-stitch sampler inspired label (by Fanakalo Studios) tells the story of the Prieska region in exquisite detail. The name “Prieska” comes from the Korana words beris+gab – place of the lost she-goat (In Afrikaans: plek van die verlore bokooi). Elements in the label include the fort built on a hill overlooking Prieska constructed from unpolished tiger’s eye mined in the area; the distinctive “Wonderdraai” turn in the Orange River and local fauna and flora – kudu, bat-eared foxes, blue goslings, doves, sociable weavers nests, aloes, quiver trees and dung beetles.
