A typical muscat character on the nose with flowers and ripe peaches. The palate is soft and rich but with balanced acidity and freshness with an amazing finish. Every year, a blend is made of the current vintage and the two preceding vintages to achieve maximum complexity and consistency of style.

The grapes are picked from our old white and red Hanepoot blocks in the early morning. They are destemmed in the winery and fermented on the skins to extract as much as possible varietal character. At around halfway through the fermentation, the grapes are pressed to old French oak barrels to continue fermentation. At a residual sugar of around 100grams, the wine is fortified to stop the fermentation. Barrel maturation on the lees is then carried out.
