Red Muscadel 2017

R82.00

Category: Product ID: 1569

Description

Hand harvested fruit at 27ºB from vines with 5 tons/ha yield & traditional vinification methods followed – skin contact over two days in lagar with frequent manual pigeage. Supposedly a natural mutation of Muscat de Frontignan, red Muscadel is becoming exceedingly rare. A Vineyard selection of the finest fruit is vinified according to traditional metods.

TASTING NOTES:

Dark red centre with pomegranate pink edge. Raspberry, tart cranberry, mulberry and rooibos tea intermingle with ripe Muscat and hints of spice greet the taster. The bouquet follows through onto the palate & is joined by Turkish delight, honeyed notes and more bright spice. The luscious palate is lifted with a zippy acidity & this is definitely one to lie down for a few years.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Best enjoyed well-chilled with traditional Cape Malay fare, exotic Asian cuisine, an array of desserts or as a mixer in cocktails. Careful cellaring over the next half decade or more will generously reward your patience.
