Cape Winemakers Guild

Boplaas Cape Vintage CWG Reserve 2015

80% Touriga Nacional, 10% Touriga Franca, 6% Souzão, 4% Tinta Barocca

Wine of Origin Western Cape 

Only the finest Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barocca and Souzão grapes were selected from specific low-yielding vineyards. All the fruit was hand harvested at optimum ripeness, fermented and fortified in small lagares and barrel matured in large seasoned oak barrels for 12 months to craft this distinctive full-bodied, complex and structured, dry-styled Cape Vintage Auction Reserve. 2015 was one of the best years for Cape Vintage production in the last 30 years.

Tasting Notes: An inky black wine with hints of ripe apricot, dried peach, a mélange of mulling spice, fynbos, intense plum, black hedgerow fruit and liquorice. A long, lingering aftertaste with firm rich tannins. 36 cases of this wine were previously sold on the 2018 CWG Auction.

Ready for drinking now and until 2045.

Winemaker: Carel Nel
