The Muratie Ronnie Melck Shiraz is an incredibly complex red wine, which inspires with its fruity notes of dark plums and mulberries as well as with its spicy nuances. Aromas of violets and dark chocolate round off the bouquet. The Muratie Ronnie Melck Shiraz, however, will leave a lasting impression with its spicy notes, which are especially marked by black pepper. On the palate, the red wine is full-bodied and soft with silky tannins and has a great structure that allows it to develop its full potential over time. Enjoy this expressive red wine, which has matured for 16 months in French oak, best served with dark meat, game or savoury dishes.

Muratie – the Winery from a different Time

If you step into the rooms of the Muratie winery, you will think you just travelled back in time. Time seems to stand still here, in a positive way. The whole estate literally breathes the traditional history and there are little details and exciting stories to be discovered everywhere. You can feel the love with which the last generations have created wines of the highest class at Muratie.

Beloved Wines with a History

In 1685, Laurens Campher founded the yard; in his honour, there is a wine with his name in the portfolio of Muratie. Every single wine tells a story and is therefore a part of the special history of the yard. Each wine carries another name that is mostly based on former owners of the estate. Besides Laurens Campher, George Paul Canitz, Alberta Annemarie, Ronnie Melck and many others are perpetuated. This shows the high importance of the history and the stories connected to it to the team of Muratie. Wine lovers can even find a literary background of the premium wines. For example, Amber Forever is based on the novel of Kathleen Winsor from the 1940s; it tells the story of the young Amber that sweetened the nights of some of the finest gentlemen of the British upper class. George Paul Canitz has created this wine and is known for the following: ‘To happy days and glorious nights, Forever Amber.’

Authentic Winery from the Owner Rijk Melck

Muratie is a wonderfully authentic winery which revives its own tradition over and over again. This can be tasted in the wines, too, that are full of energy, but also of a certain sophistication that comes with age and atmosphere. Strong notes, perfectly balanced and a pleasant harmony between acidity and tannins, or acidity and fruit aromas are their trademark. Together with the winemaker Hattingh de Villiers, the owner Rijk Melck succeeded in making Muratie an exceptionally interesting winery in South Africa. For Rijk Melck, this is more than just wine; it is about the stories and emotions that are tied to it.
