Cape Winemakers Guild

Boplaas Daniel’s Legacy 2017

53% Shiraz, 32% Touriga Franca, 9% Touriga Nacional, 6% Tinta Barocca  

In celebration of Oupa Danie’s folly of mistakenly planting Tinta Barocca in place of Shiraz – after his sojourn to the Swartland in the early 70s in an old Chevy El Camino – which set Boplaas on a path of crafting fine fortifieds and Portuguese table wines in the Cape. Blending the finest barrels of Tinta Barocca, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Shiraz originating from low yielding old vines and traditionally vinified, has created a fulsome, buxomly-fruited and age-worthy auction offering.

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 now until 2027.
