About this Item

Cape Vintage Reserve Port, 2017
3 (1 x 3) 750ml

Closely guarded by the Helderbergs peaks and cooled by fresh sea breezes off False Bay, the legendary JP Bredell Wines have become world-renowned for their award-winning quality wines of outshining others in their class, both nationally and internationally.

Beloved by ‘port’ lovers in particular, and critically acclaimed, JP Bredell Wines has new wind in its sails in the person of Bernhard Bredell, winemaker and son of the winery’s founder Anton Bredell. Rejecting the ‘materialistic glamour behind the wine estates of the new age’, the family have steadily shifted focus from their former Stellenbosch estate Helderzicht closer to their vast (8,000+ ha), mostly untouched Aasvoëlsvallei Nature Reservation Farm in Klein Karoo’s Langeberg-Garcia, to a new farm, Langberg Halt. Here Mediterranean varieties planted in virgin soils are maturing. Meanwhile grapes will be brought in from 2017 for on-site vinification, and basic visitor facilities are envisaged. The wines below are mostly limited re-releases, some in different bottle formats, of long-nurtured stock. Be on the lookout for a 20-year-old Cape Tawny ‘from Anton’s finest Helderberg vines’.

Port Style Wine: A rare and last Cape Vintage Reserve release after more than 100-years of Port production in the Helderberg, before the sell of Port fame estate “JP Bredell Wines” took place. This is a Cape Vintage Reserve made by Scions of Sinai Wines, in remembrance and to honor the Bredell Cape Vintage Reserve Ports - labeled with the old Bredell label.

Only 650 bottles produced by winemaker Bernhard Bredell, a blend of Touriga Nacional and Tinta Barocca. The port-style wine is barrel aged for 2 years, followed by 2 years in the bottle, before releasing in 2021.
