This is an absolute beauty! Aged for over ten years in barrel. Nutty, caramel, super smooth with an amazingly long finish.

£23.50

SKU 1302

The finest Tinta Barocca and Touriga Nacional is selected by the winemaker from specific low-yielding vineyards in order to craft an inky black wine, that is then barrel matured for a decade or more. All the fruit is hand harvested at optimum ripeness, fermented and fortified in small lagars, barrel matured in large seasoned oak barrels for a minimum of 8 years, blended meticulously to craft the distinctive colour and flavour profile of a fine Boplaas Cape Tawny.

TASTING NOTES:

A fiery red-brown, tawny-coloured wine with flecks of olive green on the rim. The bouquet unfurls with walnut, roasted almond, honey, caramel, a melange of spices, citrus, warming brandy and charred oak notes that typify Tawny.  A lusciously smooth, mouth-watering palate of brandied fruits, roasted nuts, honey, caramel toffee, warm spices and hints of citrus, tantalize the taste buds long after the first sip.
