Deep red in colour, full-bodied, rich, yet gentle. A floral bouquet comes through on the nose, with typical raisiny sweetness and an intense flavour that lingers on the palate and follows through on the aftertaste. Additional bottle maturation gives excellent results.

in the vineyard : Made from the oldest Red Muscadel vineyard in South Africa.

This unique wine is made exclusively from the oldest Muscadel (Muscat de Frontignan) vines in South Africa, planted on Rietvallei Estate in 1908 by the second generation of the Burger family. The Muscadel is in the form of bush vines and consists of approximately a quarter of a hectare. At 95 years of age these bush vines have an extremely low yield, resulting in excellent fruit concentration.

about the harvest: The bush vines wereharvested by hand at 28º Balling, crushed and pumped into open cement tanks.
