An overview of the Rietvallei Estate gold medal wines:
The Rietvallei JMB Chardonnay 2019 is a full-bodied, complex wine with excellent fruit and wood- integration. Lots of work in the vineyard and minimal interference in the cellar, allows this wine to express its terroir to the fullest. A complex nose, rich in citrus aromas and complemented by some spicy, toasted oak notes. The palate is rich and creamy, with a mixture of ripe orange, lemon and lime flavours.
The Rietvallei Red Muscadel 2018 is full-bodied and rich, yet gentle. A floral, muscat bouquet comes through on the nose, with typical raisin-ish 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.
