Set in the sun-drenched Breedekloof region, the historical vineyard from which this wine is made has been producing grapes since 1900. The grapes might be few, but each berry is dense with extraordinary fruit concentration, bearing an enticing perfume for which this Muscat variety is known.

Production 

The Hanepoot grapes for this wine are from timeworn, gnarly vines which bear a meagre yield, the vines are over 120 years old (South Africa only started recording vine age from 1900). Small bunches of concentrated and perfumed Muscat d'Alexandrie fruit are hand harvested, the juice fortified with a pure spirit. 

Tasting Note

This rare, complex and multi-layered dessert wine exudes aromas of honey, orange blossom and fruitcake. The palate has intense flavours of sultanas, ripe candied citrus peel and sweet mandarins

Food Match

Pairs with hard, strong cheeses or apricot frangipane
