Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve 2017

Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve 2017

An inky black wine with hints of fiery garnet on the rim; with a bouqet of crushed black berry, tart cranberry, kirsch and purple plums with bright all-spice top notes intermingled by fynbos and savoury undercurrents. The bouqet unfurls onto a bold palate with liquorice, red fruits and cocao hints to the dry finish. Time will temper the fiery fruity exuberance of youth, slowly unfurling the complexities of this fine Cape Fortified.

Buxomly spiced, full fruited and tannic in its youth, this wine is artfully crafted for decades of development in bottle – if you wish to enjoy it in its youth, best decant and company with earthy rustic dishes, braised meat dishes, venison, fine hard cheeses, charcuterie, tapas and a selection of nuts, dried fruits or succulently sweet green figs.
