Description

The finest Tinta Barocca and Touriga Nacional is selected by the winemaker from specific low-yielding vineyards in order to craft an inky black wine, that is then barrel matured for a decade or more. All the fruit is hand harvested at optimum ripeness, fermented and fortified in small lagars, barrel matured in large seasoned oak barrels for a minimum of 8 years, blended meticulously to craft the distinctive colour and flavour profile of a fine Boplaas Cape Tawny.

TASTING NOTES:

A fiery red-brown, tawny-coloured wine with flecks of olive green on the rim. The bouquet unfurls with walnut, roasted almond, honey, caramel, a melange of spices, citrus, warming brandy and charred oak notes that typify Tawny.  A lusciously smooth, mouth-watering palate of brandied fruits, roasted nuts, honey, caramel toffee, warm spices and hints of citrus, tantalize the taste buds long after the first sip.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

A versatile food-friendly fortified wine the Boplaas Cape Tawny can be served with a host of tapas, roast duck with citrus glaze, sirloin steak with café de Paris sauce, comforting Cantonese cuisines, as an aperitif with canapés, pates and roast nuts, or as a partner to decadent desserts or a selection of mature cheeses. Alternatively, serve as digestive or as a mixer with tonic water for a refreshing long drink. For best results serve chilled at 11 – 14 C or cooler in warmer climes, and serve in a white wine glass.
