Boplaas Cape Tawny Vintner’s Reserve Bin 1880 (Half Bottle)

Cape Tawny Vintner's Reserve 1880 NV

About The Wine

The Boplaas Cape Tawny Vintners Reserve is the pinnacle of their pursuit of fortified perfection – crafted from only the finest hand-harvested fruit from low-yielding vines, patiently matured in barrel for more than a decade, masterfully blended, bottled in limited quantities and destined for sheer enjoyment.


A golden coppery red coloured wine exudes a bewildering array of aromatics of bright wood spice, brandy soaked cherries and prunes; walnut, roast pecan nuts, almond, sticky treacle, salted caramel, bitter orange marmalade, eucalyptus honey & hints of vanilla, Madeira sugar and the defining rancio notes of a fine Tawny.


The palate is luscious, complex and lingering with a lilt of acidity and dry edge to the finish making for a pleasurable experience.

Serving Suggestions

A perfect partner to roast wild fowl, duck, slow-roasted pork belly, stuffed loin of pork or grilled pork chops; comforting Cape Malay or Cantonese cuisine; fine mature cheese and cold cuts; decadent dark chocolate desserts, dark chocolates or simply enjoyed in good company.

Best Enjoyed Chilled (12-14℃).
