Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve 2016

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.

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.
