From a single vineyard of Muscat de Frontignan, the wine is aged for one year in old French oak and bottled and matured before release.
An expressive nose of soft peaches, fresh pineapple and ripe apricot. These heady aromas are supported by floral orange blossom, jasmine and honey. The mouth-watering sweetness is cut by tangy acidity to provide a lingering after taste. Naturally fermented and unfortified, this wine is a perfect match to foie gras and other savoury entrees to sweet, spicy puddings served with cream or a traditional cheese platter at the end of the meal.
Julian Johnsen, Anthony Ward, and Richard Gower own this historic 40 hectares farm which has a three centuries old wine making tradition. Some of their wines are named after the pioneer farmers who set up Signal Cannons (which were used to communicate to farmers when a ship arrived in Cape Town’s Table Bay harbour) on what is now the highest peak of the Vondeling farm.
