Muratie Cape Ruby NV

Muratie Cape Ruby NV

As ruby-coloured as its name, this fortified wine exudes warmth, heart and pleasure. Forthright red and black fruit on the nose, with faint whiffs of orange peel and violets, give way to a powerful combination of sweet, ripe fruit (plums, prunes, damsons, mulberries), spice (cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg) and well-integrated alcohol, all  providing a warming, but incredibly well-balanced finish. A cheerful and generous wine with plenty of character and body.

This wine will prove a more than worthy partner for a long, confidential evening with a good friend and some great cheese.
