McGregor White Muscadel 2023

From R90.00

You will find predominantly fresh fruits on the nose, like white pear and peaches.  The white muscadel is full bodied with a hint of acidity to balance out the sweetness.  It is smooth and has a creamy raisin aspect on the palate, that is in perfect balance with the acidity and sugar.  The alcohol is smoothly integrated in this master piece.

Winemaker’s Comments:
The grapes stand on red alluvial soil, specifically on hot north facing slopes.  The terroir is karoo-like, with hot, dry weather.  The dry terroir helps create a nice ‘raisin-like’ aroma in the wine.  The grapes are picked late afternoon, to ensure over ripe fruit.  The juice ferments only for a couple of hours and then wine spirits is added.  This stops fermentation due to the high alcohol content and ensures natural sweetness of the fortified wine.

Serving Suggestions:
Enjoy this wine after dinner or as a sundowner with crushed ice.
