Du Toitskloof Red Muscadel 2006

Du Toitskloof Red Muscadel 2006

After 48 hours of skin contact in a roto-tank, the skins were pressed to a full, smooth dessert wine with an attractive fluorescent light ruby colour with brick specks. Heady, raisin perfumes with notes of tea-leaf, honey and roses. Luscious litchi and mango tastes and a smooth, lingering finish.
