About this Item

1997 Masters Cape Vintage Reserve Port
1 (1 x 1) 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.

The Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve continues the Nel’s heritage of crafting the very finest Cape fortifieds utilising Portuguese varietals, traditional vinification methods and remaining true to style to create a wine which will offer decades of enjoyment. Crafted from four old vine Portuguese varietals, hand harvested at optimal ripeness and fermented in lagars with intense manual pigeage to extract optimal flavour, colour & tannins prior to fortification with wine spirit and matured for two years in old large format French oak barrels before bottling unfined and unfiltered.
