Boplaas Auction Reserve Port 2008

This auction reserve Port was made from low yielding (5t/ha) Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca and Souzao grapes. Hand selected full ripe bunches were picked, destemmed and punched down continuously for maximum colour and flavour extraction. Fortified at 11 degrees Balling and matured in old oak barrels for 1 year. Tasting note: Intense black colour, complex integrated flavours of violets, chocolate, black berry, dried fruit and fynbos. Soft ripe tannins, alcohol integrated with a lingering aftertaste.

Winemaker: Carel Nel
