Description

Harvest the grapes at 23 – 24ºB with a yield of 13 ton/ha of Sauvignon Blanc vines. The vines are all trellised in such a way that all the grapes are shaded to give the wine a grassy green flavour.

When you think of the houses of the quaint Karoo towns dotted along the Route 62 and beyond, one striking attribute that all share in common is the presence of a “stoep” or wrap-around patio. These “stoeps” serve as gathering places for friends, family and passers-by where stories are told, problems are solved and where you can take refuge from the day’s toil.

To celebrate Boplaas’s patriarch Ouma Roline’s 90th vintage, her love of Sauvignon Blanc, the innumerable afternoons she’s entertained friends and family on her “stoep” and the joy this has brought her, it is only apt that from this vintage the Boplaas Sauvignon Blanc will be henceforth be bottled as the Boplaas Stoepsit Sauvignon Blanc. The first Sauvignon Blanc crafted at Boplaas was in 1982 and since then Roline’s son, Carel Nel, has each vintage attempted to craft the ideal “stoep” companion for his mother and her friends.

TASTING NOTES:

Fresh fruit flavours of lime and lemongrass on the nose. Lovely tangy lime-flavours with good weight and a crisp dry finish on the pallet.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

The tropical fruit mélange of flavours of this Sauvignon is best paired with grilled Kabeljou and thick home-style chips, alternatively serve this wine well-chilled as an aperitif or accompaniment anytime!
