South Africa

Through progressive winemaking practices Marc Kent has had a stellar career and has built up an international reputation as one of South Africa’s greatest winemakers. Based in Franschhoek the estate has gained cult status because of the exquisitely balanced wines that reflect the varieties used as much as the soil they come from. The reputation of the winery is built as much on the outstanding value of the everyday wines as it is on the quality of the flagship bottles. The top wines from Boekenhoutskloof are made in tiny quantities and have a fanatical following with canny customers buying early to avoid disappointment. The Wolftrap range reflects Marc’s fascination with the Rhône and The Chocolate Block has carved out an impressive niche for itself with its deep complex character.
