In The Vineyard

The vines are located on our Bottelary property. It is a mixture of over 50 year old Chenin blanc bush vines, and over 70 year old Muscat de Alexandrie trellised vines. Grapes are allowed to contract botrytis, before being harvested. For this reason, the Muscat is only harvested in May after the first winter rains, where picking normally stops at the end of March in Stellenbosch.

About The Harvest

Grapes are picked between 36 - 40° Balling.

In The Cellar

Grapes are crushed and some skin contact allowed for extraction. The juice is taken directly to barrels and fermented naturally over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. The Chenin Blanc and Muscat ferment separately and the wine blended after a period of 12 months in barrel.

Additional Information

Our noble late harvest is based on a legacy of winemaking continued in modern times with strong family winemaking traditions brought forward in every bottle of Chenin d’ Muscat. This natural sweet wine is the only wine still carrying the original 1928 label.
