The Estate has been renowned in the past years for the production of excellent Shiraz wines.
“The wine is created from a very special block on the farm that has proved itself over many years to exhibit the particular characters that is typical of our unique terroir and the micro-climate that improves the production of the Shiraz grape”, comments Rolanie Lotz, Rhebokskloof’s winemaker.
Lotz is supported by mentor and well-known winemaker, Francois Naude, and Karin Louw as viticulturist. The team consistently produces top quality wines.
The Black Marble Hill Reserve Syrah is Rhebokskloof’s "iconic" wine and the grapes are carefully picked from an 18-year old Shiraz vineyard. The grapes are handpicked, pressed, inserted into 300 litre French oak barrels and aged for 18-24 months. The award-winning wine can be purchased online at www.rhebokskloof.co.za.
Previous awards from Rhebokskloof include the 2009 Syrah du Monde Gold (2006 vintage), 2010 Syrah du Monde Gold (2007 vintage) and 2012 Michaelangelo Gold (2010 vintage).
