Winemaker: Christoff de Wet
Appellation: Klein Karoo
Grape varietal: Muscat Blanc (Muscadel)
The Muscat Blanc grapes were sourced from a trellised vineyard in the Kruisrivier area 20km from Calitzdorp, approximately 374m above sea level. These low-yielding vines bearing only five ton/ha provide extreme concentrated fruit. The grapes were hand harvested early in the morning at the end of February at very high sugar levels.
Bunches were sorted before being destemmed and crushed in open tanks overnight. During this time the skins and juice were continuously mixed to extract maximum flavors. The skins were then pressed and the juice fortified.
Colour: Lush golden yellow colour with a slight green tint.
Bouquet: Full Muscat flavours complemented by an abundance of fresh ripe fruits of peach, litchis and spring blossoms.
Taste: Sweet, but fresh soft fruits and Muscat flavours fill the palate as the wine explodes in your mouth with beautiful balance and integrated acidity and alcohol.
Excellent enjoyed on its own, or with dessert, nuts and dried fruit.
