About this Item

Vintage Reserve Port, 1994
2 (1 x 2) 750ml
Multiple award-winning 6th generation producer owned by the Nel family, who established the Calitzdorp district in the Klein Karoo and gradually built it to world-wide fame for the quality of its Port-styled wines produced outside of the Duoro valley. Cape Wine Master and Cape Winemakers Guild member, Carel Nel, is extremely knowledgeable about the category of Port, and is crafting (now along with the next generation) a consistently brilliant style of fortifieds from authentic Portuguese varieties that adapt well to this warm and dry region.

Critics Ratings

'Amongst top “new-wave Cape ports”, 94 from 26-year old ungrafted Tinta Barocca, Souzao. Opaque, purple-tinged, despite youth already approachable, has fleshy succulence, vibrant, deep concentration of fruit, spice, earthiness. Starkly handsome black and white livery.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 1997, Pick of the Bunch.
