An intense, fresh nose shows a dark compote, with aromas of ripe plums, blackberry, violets, musky earth and exotic spice. The black fruit of the nose follows through with blueberries, juicy plums, fresh cherry and bramble flavours, and hints of leather, cloves, liquorice and potting soil – a balanced, brooding wine with integrated acidity, prominent sweet spice and smoky, savoury nuances. The smooth, velvety tannins add great balance to the mid-palate. The wine has a
medium body and a plummy finish, with supple tannins, hints of dark chocolate, and sweet spice lingering on an ashy, iodine finish. 14.71

The Porcupine Ridge brand has its origins in the natural environment of the farm and the ongoing efforts to conserve the biodiversity on the property and the surrounding mountains. In addition to a number of rare fauna and flora species – such as the erica lerouxiae which is endemic to Boekenhoutskloof – the farm is home to a several Crested Porcupine families, which are however rarely seen due to their nocturnal lifestyle.
