Muratie

Tucked into the exquisite Knorhoek Valley, north of Stellenbosch, Muratie Wine Estate, under the stewardship of Rijk Melck and his family, has been at the heart of a lot of passionate debate. This debate is centred largely around the desire to protect a century’s old wine experience that is a magnet for wine lovers around the world. The farm itself dates back to 1685 when it was granted by Governor Simon van der Stel who was Governor of the Cape of Good Hope at the time. This makes Muratie one of the oldest estates in South Africa and along with that age, comes many characters and truly fascinating stories.

The Melck family has revived this rich heritage in an updated yet classical evolution of the brand, naming its range after many of these colourful characters. For example, the MCC bubbly is known as Lady Alice. She is joined by Ansela van de Caab (blended red), George Paul Canitz (Pinot Noir), Ronnie Melck (Shiraz), Alberta Annemarie (Merlot), Laurens Campher (blended white), Isabella (Chardonnay) and Ben Prins (Port).

It is not only the label that has changed. The wine itself has also  undergone incredible changes in quality, under the creative hand of winemaker Hattingh De Villiers and his team. This has seen Muratie become a serious and respected player in the Bordeaux blend, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir stakes. Historically, Muratie has been known for being the first producer of Pinot Noir as well as fine ports.

Along with the development of other varietals, Muratie has elevated itself into a new appreciation amongst truly discerning wine lovers.

A deep golden, rich honey colour with a vivacious tint of green. The wine has developed a voluptuous, complex nose rich in sundrenched apricot, peach, freshly baked bread and roasted almond complemented by a well-integrated wood character which will become more harmonious with time and bottle ageing. A crisp mouth feel with flavours of citrus especially fresh lime, velvety creaminess and lingering citrus aftertaste with the wood in harmony.

Irresistible aromas of tropical fruit are beautifully balanced by subtle oak and follow through on the palate. The lingering finish rewards with titillating lime and gorgeous butterscotch.
