About this Item

Cape Vintage Reserve Port, 1996
6 (1 x 6) 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

‘Impressive, long-lasting Cape ‘port’, made only in exceptional years. ’96 Almost molasses-like in fruit density, cinnamon spice intensity. Promise good development over the next decade at least.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2000, 4.5*
