Stellar Heaven On Earth Sweet Muscat – The effect of drying the Muscat grapes on a bed of straw and rooibos tea is added flavour as well as intensity. What’s not lost is Muscat’s natural acidity and this keeps the wine deliciously fresh. A great way to kick-start an evening with friends or take with a mild blue cheese at the end of dinner. Fair trade – Certified Fair for Life. 37.5ml.
Alc. 11% by vol. Stellar Winery is situated 275 kilometres north of Cape Town, just outside Vredendal on the road to Namibia. This is an area famous for its spring flowers and is the only semi-arid biosphere hotspot in the world. The company is a joint venture created by the Roussouw brothers in 2000 between four farmers and the winemaking cellar, which now has the capacity to handle 900 tonnes of organic grapes from these independent farms straddling the northern boundary of the Olifants river wine region and Namaqualand. Working closely with the farmers, winemaker Klaas Coetzee, produces a excellent range of wines with great consistency and no small amount of individual flair. The coastal location of their vineyards contributes to the unique characteristics of their wines. Unlike other wineries in the Olifants River region, these vineyards are located closer to the Atlantic Ocean, and are constantly cooled by the sea breeze giving a lovely freshness to the wines.
