About The Wine

The Boplaas Cape Tawny Vintners Reserve is the pinnacle of their pursuit of fortified perfection – crafted from only the finest hand-harvested fruit from low-yielding vines, patiently matured in barrel for more than a decade, masterfully blended, bottled in limited quantities and destined for sheer enjoyment.

 

A golden coppery red coloured wine exudes a bewildering array of aromatics of bright wood spice, brandy soaked cherries and prunes; walnut, roast pecan nuts, almond, sticky treacle, salted caramel, bitter orange marmalade, eucalyptus honey & hints of vanilla, Madeira sugar and the defining rancio notes of a fine Tawny.

 

The palate is luscious, complex and lingering with a lilt of acidity and dry edge to the finish making for a pleasurable experience.

Serving Suggestions

A perfect partner to roast wild fowl, duck, slow-roasted pork belly, stuffed loin of pork or grilled pork chops; comforting Cape Malay or Cantonese cuisine; fine mature cheese and cold cuts; decadent dark chocolate desserts, dark chocolates or simply enjoyed in good company.

Best Enjoyed Chilled (12-14℃).
