VARIETY:100% Muscat de Frontignan
TASTING NOTES: “Rich straw colour with
delicate orange rind flavours and grapey freshness on the
palate. Nice hints of
marzipan character on the palate. The wine has an interesting
hazelnut and white chocolate finish.”
AREA OF ORIGIN: Robertson, South
VINEYARD: Mature established vineyards on
limestone Karoo soils, hand pruned, yielding 7 tons per
HARVEST DETAILS: Hand picked early morning
on 8 March 2011, at a sugar level of 26°B.
VINIFICATION: The grapes are lightly
crushed, destalked and left on the skins for natural enzymatic
fermentation. After 3
days of fermentation approximately 3% of natural alcohol was
formed. The fermentation was then arrested with the addition of
neutral grape spirit.
This approach helps to express the beautiful grape flavour of
Muscat de Frontignan.
The wine was then stored in a stainless steel tank for the grape
flavours and spirits to integrate prior to bottling.
