Porseleinberg

About Porseleinberg

One of the immensely impressive South African projects founded by the legendary Marc Kent, Porseleinberg has quickly risen to become one of the world’s, not just South Africa’s, most in-demand wines thanks to its breath-taking quality and significant rarity.

It was Kent’s quest to source terroir suitable for the cultivation of top quality Rhône varietals for his Boekenhoutskloof and Chocolate Block labels which led to the emergence of Porseleinberg. Naturally drawn to the Swartland for this purpose, his search was completed when he came across a 173-acre farm atop the Porseleinberg mountain which was purchased in 2009. After re-planting to Syrah and Grenache, it was quickly decided that a pure Syrah had the potential to be something really quite special – and so it came to pass...

One need only look at the previous three vintages of Porseleinberg to comprehend the power and seriousness of this cuvée as a presence on the international fine wine stage. Awarded 97 points in 2017, a perfect 100 in 2018 and a very close 99 points in 2019 courtesy of Tim Atkin MW, this is an elixir of uncommon brilliance.

The arrival of Callie Louw as winemaker and viticulturist for this project will no doubt be seen as one of the greatest appointments in South Africa’s emergent fine wine scene of all time. A farmer at heart with the skill of a sculpture when it comes to crafting sensational wines, he is most comfortable amongst the vines be it pruning or harvesting, and shuns the increasingly glamourous regard in which his wines are held!

Porseleinberg Swartland Syrah 2017 (12x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (98)

Has any brand in South Africa achieved quite so much as Porseleinberg in less than a decade? This is the best vintage yet from this steep, brutal, extreme schist-rich site and that's saying a good deal. Big, bold and intense, with incredible, almost feral intensity, incense, tar and black pepper aromas and layers of inky dark fruit. A stunning wine from a stunning site, made by a gem of a winemaker.

Porseleinberg Swartland Syrah 2018 (12x75cl)

Tim Atkin (100)

In the right hands, great sites produce great wines. Since its inception in 2010, Porseleinberg has been one of the Cape's most exciting reds, but nothing quite prepared me for the transcendent brilliance of this wine. In uenced by some time spent at Domaine Jamet in Côte Rôtie - particularly their use of a submerged cap during fermentation - Callie Louw has made a stunning Syrah, proving his skills as both a farmer and a winemaker. In 2018, the style has shifted, away from power and grip to something more scented and re ned. Focused, nuanced and very delicately oaked, with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, clove and white pepper spice and textured tannins. Simply world class. 2023-35

Porseleinberg Swartland Syrah 2019 (12x75cl)

Tim Atkin MW (99)

This remarkable site has established itself as one of the world's great Syrah vineyards in less than a decade. Sourced from four blocks totally 4.5 hectares, Callie Louw's stunning red is just short of perfection this year, but is still brilliant, confirming the evolution in style of the Jamet-inspired 2018. Leafy, spicy, rose petal aromas are supported by pure red berry fruit, detailed tannins and the faintest hint of oak.
