Description

Boplaas Cape Port wines are crafted much the same way as the lauded Ports of the Douro Valley utilising full-ripe Portuguese varietal fermented in traditional open fermenters, known as lagares, with intense manual pigeage; fortifying at the correct moment with the finest grape spirit and maturing in barrel for the appropriate length of time according to the style, prior to meticulous blending and bottling lightly filtered to ensure the very best wine for your enjoyment.

Harvest the grapes at 26 B with a yield of 5 ton/ha. Young Touriga Nacional Vines and Old Tinta Barocca Vines planted in ’68.

Tasting notes:

This is a dark port, purplish black port with flavours of cherries, plum, blackberries, violets, pepper, spiciness and dark chocolate. Expectations are meet when you taste the wine – full-bodied with big ripe tannins and integrated alcohol, with a long and luscious after-taste.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Many people have discovered that Vintage Port is a very enjoyable and memorable way to finish a meal and indeed it is now frequently served as a very satisfying dessert in its own right. Enjoyed for its luscious fruit flavours with complex notes of chocolate and spice, Vintage Port is commonly paired with Stilton cheese, although it is outstanding with most types of cheese. Chocolate is sensational with Vintage Port, as are dried fruits and nuts. More adventurous combinations involve ice-cream, crème brule, and fresh fruit.
