Description

Low-yielding Hanepoot vines planted thirty-odd years ago by Oupa Danie Nel – the winemaker’s father – were hand harvest at optimal ripeness, naturally fermented in the lagars with manual pigeage every 4 hours over the four day fermentation prior to fortification with wine spirit. The resulting Hanepoot was aged sur lie in stainless steel tank for half a year prior to blending and bottling.

This complex, approachable and versatile Cape Hanepoot can be served as an aperitif, but pairs well with Cantonese cuisine, spicy Indian or Thai dishes and decadently sweet desserts or as a mixer for a myriad of cocktails.

Tasting Notes:

A bright lemon yellow coloured wine with lime tinged rim; bouquet leaps from the glass with intense ripe Hanepoot grapes, pineapple, lemon rind, litchi and winter melon intermingled with hints of jasmine, honey suckle and faint spicy notes. A lusciously sweet, mouth-watering palate of crammed full of fresh Sultana, honey, litchi, melon, fig leaf, lemon and lime marmalade undercurrents, all buoyed by zippy acidity and lingering hints of citrus rind and subtle minerality.

Serving Suggestions:

A versatile food-friendly fortified wine the Boplaas Hanepoot can be served with a host of comforting Cantonese cuisine; spicy Indian or Thai dishes; as an aperitif with canapés or pates; as accompaniment to roast duck or pork; as partner to decadent desserts – such as traditional Malva pudding, fresh summer fruits or a selection of mild soft cheeses, alternatively serve as digestive, over crushed ice in a Martini glass or as mixer for a myriad of cocktails.
