Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve 2017

85% Touriga Nacional, 10%Touriga Franca, 3% Souzão, 2% Tinta Barocca

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.

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.

Ready for drinking in 2028.

This wine is packed in a wooden box.
