Winemaker: Christoff de Wet
Appellation: W.O. Western Cape
Grape varietal: Muscat de Frontignan, Muscat de Alexandrie
Hand harvested old low yielding vineyards at the end of January. Grapes are picked at low sugars to ensure maximum fruit flavours and low alcohols.
The grapes are harvested early morning to ensure cool temperatures. After the grapes are destemmed and crushed and pumped into a separating tank where the juice and skins are separated. The juice flows by gravity into a settling tank and is settled out overnight. Clear juice is racked into fermentation tanks the next morning and fermentation is started by adding selected yeast. The juice is fermented at 14oC until dry, where after Muscadel juice is added to sweeten and CO2 for Perlé just before bottling.
Colour: Beautiful sun light yellow colour with fine fizzy bubbles.
Bouquet: Fresh tropical fruit flavours of litchi and apricot enhanced by a hint of muscat.
Taste: Alluring freshness of tropical fruit, muscat and honey amplified with a fizzy taste and exotic spice.
Food pairing: Great on its own or served with fresh summer salads, cold meats or light meals. Also makes an interesting pairing with mild curries.
