Porseleinberg is named after the farm and the mountain on which it is grown, which sits south of the Kasteelberg in the Swartland. Rhône fanatic and visionary, Marc Kent – of Boekenhoutskloof fame – bought the property in 2009, and in an inspired move hired Callie Louw to manage it independently. The wild, windy hilltop vineyard, with its extremely rocky blue schist soils, yields one of South Africa’s greatest Syrahs – a wine which comfortably rubs shoulders with the very greatest Syrahs on the planet. The inaugural vintage of this intense, structured, and captivating wine was 2010. The 2021 is the twelfth vintage, but the eleventh release, as the tiny 2011 vintage was never commercially released.
