Muratie Ben Prins Cape Vintage 2021

Product information "Muratie Ben Prins Cape Vintage 2021"
With an impressive colour, the Muratie Ben Prins Cape Vintage delights wine lovers and impresses with a wonderfully fragrant bouquet. The nose is spoilt by floral notes of violets and roses together with Christmas spices and plum pudding. On the palate, fruity flavours such as black cherries and notes of hazelnuts covered in dark chocolate provide the perfect framework. There are also spicy undertones with nuances of truffle and tobacco, paired with a lively acidity that harmonises with the smooth structure. The dessert wine is made from grapes from 50-year-old vines of Tinta Barocca, Tinta Roritz, Tinta Francesca and Souzao. The dessert wine was matured for two years in French oak and refined with brandy. You should definitely enjoy the Muratie Ben Prins Cape Vintage on its own, but it is also highly recommended in combination with a savoury cheese platter.

Muratie Wine for the Gourmet

Muratie in South Africa produces premium wine for gourmets. Wine novices as well as connoisseurs find the right red or white wine in a variety of ranges. All Muratie wines have in common a particular, individual character and offer an excellent price-quality ratio.

The Muratie Vineyard

The vineyard Muratie attaches great importance to careful handling of the vines at the wine slope. The yard is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative and does not use herbicides. Only geese, ducks and turkeys are used for pest control. This natural approach shows in the Muratie wine, especially as the wine growers still hand-pick the grapes to avoid peel damage. The Muratie winery owns 45 hectares of cultivation area on which red as well as white grape varieties are planted. The soil is relatively dry which is why the land is watered after the harvest. Only by doing this, the winemakers can supply the next vintage with sufficient nutrients. The 300-year-old yard offers great products in all types of wine, but especially the Shiraz caused a stir internationally.

The Landscape around Muratie

Muratie wine benefits from the good location in South Africa, but even more from the passionate winemakers who deliver premium wine of an international level, year after year, and with great love for detail. Who ever visited Muratie surely noticed the many oak trees - these used to be considered as a protection against wild animals. Nowadays, they make for a breath-taking atmosphere for guests and wine enthusiasts who visit Muratie.
