Port style (specify style: Ruby, Tawny, LBV, Vintage and Vintage Reserve) () Vintage
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.
