Annandale CVP Port 2005
“Rare hand-crafted port, from former Springbok and master winemaker Hempies du Toit.”
R240.01 per bottle (South Africa)
Back in very limited quantities after years of absence. This Cape Vintage Port is something truly special, and absolutely unique. Former Springbok Hempies du Toit produces tiny quantities of this wine on his Annandale farm. The finest Shiraz grapes are vinified to the highest standards, by hand (Annandale doesn’t suffer from load-shedding as everything is done manually, including cooling in the cellar which is done the old way using mountain water) with painstaking attention to detail. The base wine is then fortified with premium brandy spirit and then matured in old brandy barrels from the 60’s and 70’s. The result is out-of-this-world delicious! A Cape Vintage with a difference, enticing even non-fortified drinkers. Buy a few cases now as stocks will not last!
