Boplaas Touriga Nacional 2015 Touriga Nacional is the foundation of the finest fortifieds and some of the world’s most exciting wines coming out of Portugal. Boplaas, located in SA’s so-called ‘port capital’ of Calitzdorp produces fortified wines using port varieties as well as still wine. Harvested by hand in the cool of the morning & fermented in temperature controlled open top cement ferementers – called kuipe in Afrikaans or lagars in Portugal – with manual punch-downs to gently coax optimum flavour and colour extraction from the grape skins while maintaining the bold aromatics. The wine is barrel matured in 3rd & 4th-fill French oak barrels for 10 months prior to bottling with a light filtration. This accessible, medium bodied Touriga Nacional showcases the varietals heady aromatics with ripe black plum, kirsch, vibrant five spice, fynbos & notes of coco nib and charcuterie on the palate. The tannins are firm, but yielding offering years of enjoyment ahead.
Sijnn Trincadeira 2013 made by Charla Haasbroek (Malgas) aka Tinta Amarela. This is a popular variety of red wine grape generally used in Port wine production. Rich in colour, with good acidity. Properly ripened, it has vibrant raspberry fruit with herbs, pepper, spice & floral notes. It can age well. It is a difficult vine to grow and requires careful canopy management to prevent vegetal flavours dominating and it ripens early, so they need to get in there before the birds. The grapes are crushed into a tank where natural fermentation takes place then pressed into 225L barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place. Once malo is done, it’s racked off the gross lease for the first time (racking serves as ‘filtering’, since they do not filter). Once racked, some sulphur is added and then it stays in the barrel and will be in barrel for a total of 18 months. After 18 months it’s bottled. No filtering and no fining involved, all natural. This wine is relatively subdued compared to the others in the selection. Soft tannins and a sleek feel. It will develop over next 2 years or so.
Allesverloren Tinta Barocca 2010 (Swartland). The farm, near Riebeek-Kasteel dates back to 1704 and has been producing wine since 1804. The farm has been in the Malan family since 1872. The juice was fermented on the skins for five to seven days at 25° C. After malolactic fermentation the wine was aged in wood for eight months, using new, second-fill and third-fill French oak barrels. Concentrated, ripe and brooding with liquorice, lavender, and bramble on the nose. A solid core of primary fruit supported by bright acidity and firm tannins that have developed nicely in the bottle.
Mellasat Tempranillo 2015 (Paarl) aka Tinta Roriz. Tempranillo is a red grape variety which forms the backbone of some of the finest wines from Spain and Portugal. Almost every red wine from Rioja and Ribera del Duero has Tempranillo at its core, and in Portugal the variety is widely used in the Douro Valley – under the name Tinta Roriz – both for table wines and fortified wines. Tempranillo is a versatile grape which can be used to make juicy, young reds as well as more serious, oak-aged reds with a veneer of vanilla, liquorice and tobacco spice characters overlaying the strawberry flavours.
Peter Bayly 111 2014 by Peter Bayly is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca & Souzao. The III is special due to the fact that the vineyard is located high up in the foot hills of the Swartberg and planted on shale with very little top soil. The vines struggle their way through to find water nutrients. The unique location allows for a long, slow ripening season, resulting in concentrated fruit and an elegant wine with good acidity, superb structure. Great for accompanying hearty dishes and most importantly, a good glass to enjoy and share with friends and family.
