The latest accolade for Boplaas Family Vineyards comes from the 2017 South African Wine Index (SAWi) Awards and goes to the Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve which has been rated the best in South Africa. Confirming its status as one of the country’s premium Cape Port producers, Boplaas was also awarded three platinum awards for its Cape Vintage Reserve, Cape Tawny and Cape Tawny Vintage Reserve, as well as a grand gold award for the Boplaas Cape Vintage.
An index is essentially an abstract mathematical principled construct applied to measure the performance of something. The South African Wine Index is such a result, a contrivance created to appraise and make a formal judgment on the quality of wine with the sole aim of identifying SA’s finest wines. Having in this way set a comparative value in wine quality judging, it highlights wines consistently recognized as exceptional.
