Description

The Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve continues the Nel’s heritage of crafting the very finest Cape fortifieds utilising Portuguese varietals, traditional vinification methods and remaining true to style to create a wine which will offer decades of enjoyment.

Crafted from Portuguese varietals, hand harvested at optimal ripeness and fermented in lagars with intense manual pigeage to extract optimal flavour, colour & tannins prior to fortification with wine spirit and matured for a year in old large Pipes before bottling unfined and unfiltered.

TASTING NOTES

Boplaas’s signature blend of the Portuguese varietals.  Darker than a moonless Karoo night, with a tinge of bright purple at the rim. Freshly tilled red earth, ripe apricots, fynbos, pepper and a hint of spirit on the bouquet.  Good tannins with hints of fresh plum, sweet apricots, loads of liquorice and fynbos dominate the superbly structured palate.  This Cape Vintage Reserve is the culmination of more than a quarter century’s Port making effort of the Nel family to create an almost flawless Cape Port that will age for more than four decades or so, if stored optimally.  In a word sensational.
