Rietvallei 1908 Muscadel 2018

Rietvallei 1908 Muscadel 2018

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

Pair with noble cheeses and almost any dessert...delicious with rich chocolate or strawberries & ice cream. Serve at room temperature (18°C). Enjoy as an aperitif or as a winter warmer in front of the fireplace on a chilly evening.

in the vineyard : This unique wine is made exclusively from the oldest Muscadel (Muscat de Frontignan) vines in South Africa, planted on the 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 103 years of age (at picking this specific vintage) these bush vines have an extremely low yield, resulting in excellent fruit concentration.

about the harvest: The bush vines were harvested by hand at 28 °Balling (Brix)

in the cellar : During this time the mash was worked every two hours through manual punch-downs and pump-overs. On day three the must naturally started fermenting and fortification with pure wine spirits was done on the skins.
