Boplaas received two SA Champion Trophies at the SA Young Wine Show held at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West recently.
The SA Champion Sauvignon Blanc was produced from coastal vineyards and will be bottled under the Cool Bay Reserve label. Boplaas also produced the SA Champion Sauvignon Blanc in 2009.
Boplaas also received the SA Champion trophy for Port entered in the Vintage class. Boplaas made the SA Champion Port in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The Boplaas Cape Vintatge Reserve 2005, 2006 and 2007 all received 5 stars in Platter.
Carel and Margaux Nel, the father and daughter team, are very excited about the Sauvignon Blanc. Great care had been taken with the transport of the grapes and handling in the cellar.
The Ports from Boplaas received several accolades this year, including a Platter 5 star (2010 edition), Port of the year for 2010 at SAA, best Vintage, Ruby and Museum Port at the Port Challenge and 5 star in Wine Magazine for the 2006 Cape Vintage Reserve Port.
