In The Vineyard
The grapes used for this wine comes from 20 - 30 year old bushvines planted high up in the Bottelary Hills. Soil types vary from decomposed granite to more sandy soils. The Muscat vineyards used in this wine are almost 50 years old and boasts with concentration and falvour.
About The Harvest
Grapes are picked at optimum ripeness around 22° Balling.
In The Cellar
The juice was allowed some skin contact with the grapes. The juice always partially goes through a native yeast fermentation, before it is inoculated with a special commercial yeast Vin2000 producing rich ripe flavours in the wine.
The Muscat is picked as Noble Late Harvest when the grapes have picked up Botrytis and fermented to a residual sugar of about 140g/L. This is the element that sweetens the wine and make it so floral. It is fermented cold in stainless steel tanks over a period of 2 to 3 weeks at between 11 - 15° C and left on its primary fermentation leese for at least 3 months before refinement and bottling.
