Muscat (specify red or white) and Hanepoot (35) Unwooded non-vintage or 2020 and older


Rietvallei Red Muscadel is full-bodied, rich, yet gentle. A floral, Muscat bouquet comes through on the nose, with typical raisiny sweetness and an intense, rich flavour that lingers on the palate and follows through on the aftertaste while the acidity compliments and balances the sweetness.

Pair with noble cheeses and almost any desert...delicious with rich chocolate or strawberries & ice cream. Serve at room temperature (18ÂșC) or chilled. Enjoy as an aperitif or as a winter warmer in front of the fireplace on a chilly evening. During summer serve in a cocktail glass with crushed ice and sliced strawberries. Also in summer, serve in a tall glass with lots of ice, soda water, fresh ginger, a mint leaf and a slice of lemon.
