Boplaas The 1932 Block Hanepoot 2015

A bright lemon yellow coloured wine with lime tinged rim; the bouquet leaps from the glass with intense ripe Hanepoot grapes, pineapple, lemon rind, litchi and winter melon intermingled with hints of jasmine, honey suckle and faint spicy notes. A lusciously sweet, mouth-watering palate of crammed full of fresh Sultana, honey, litchi, melon, fig leaf, lemon and lime marmalade undercurrents, all buoyed by zippy acidity and lingering hints of citrus rind and subtle minerality.

A versatile food-friendly fortified wine the Boplaas Hanepoot can be served with a host of comforting Cantonese cuisine; spicy Indian or Thai dishes; as an aperitif with canapés or pates; as accompaniment to roast duck or pork; as partner to decadent desserts - such as traditional Malva pudding, fresh summer fruits or a selection of mild soft cheeses, alternatively serve as digestive, over crushed ice in a Martini glass or as mixer for a myriad of cocktails.
