Boplaas CWG Daniel’s Legacy 2021

55% Touriga Nacional, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Shiraz, 8% Tinta Barocca
Wine of Origin Western Cape

  • This wine is made in celebration of Oupa Danie’s folly of mistakenly planting Tinta Barocca instead of Shiraz, after his sojourn to the Swartland in the early 1970s in an old Chevy El Camino.
  • The result set Boplaas on a path of crafting fine fortifieds and Portuguese table wines in the Cape.
  • This wine is crafted by blending the finest barrels of Portuguese cultivars with French cultivars originating from low-yielding old vines, and using traditional vinification methods.

Tasting Notes: Bright garnet-red wine, black hedgerow fruits, tart cranberry, ripe plum notes, spice and fynbos. This wine only reveals its true underpinnings with time in the glass and tempts one to return for more.

Drink from 2029 onwards.

Winemaker: Carel Nel
