1908 Muscadel 2008 Centenary Edition

This unique dessert wine is made from the oldest red Muscadel vineyard in South Africa. The bush vine was planted on the Estate in 1908, by the second generation of the Burger family, and consists of approximately a quarter of a hectare. At more than 100 years of age these bush vines have an extremely low yield, resulting in an excellent fruit concentration.

This wine is still made according to the original Burger family recipe as passed down through the generations since 1864, when Alwyn Burger acquired the farm. Most of the traditional winemaking techniques are still followed to this day for this special wine, e.g. the fermentation in open concrete tanks, the wetting of the cap by pushing it down by hand every two hours during fermentation and finally the use of a hand operated basket press. You could really say that this wine is hand made.
