Boplaas Cape Ruby wines are crafted much the same way as the lauded Ports of the Douro Valley – utilizing full-ripe Portuguese varietals fermented in traditional open fermenters, known as lagares, with interns manual pigeage; fortifying at the correct moment with the finest grape spirits and maturing in barrels for the appropriate length of time according to the style, prior to meticulous blending and bottling lightly filtered to ensure the very best wine for your enjoyment.

Select Touriga Nacional and Tinta Barocca is hand harvested, fermented and fortified in small lagares, barrel matured in large seasoned oak barrels for a period of at least 12 months, to craft this fruit forward style of Cape Ruby.
