Explore with Du Toitskloof Muscadel this winter
15 June 2012 by Du Toitskloof
This winter make sure you bring the Du Toitskloof Red Muscadel not only
to your fireside as an after-dinner treat but also to your kitchen. Make
it part of your cooking and you'll be amazed at just how versatile this
flavourful dessert wine is.
Add it to lamb shanks as it slowly simmers until tender or to a plum sauce to accompany roast duck; use it to poach pears to bring out their rich flavours or simply pour a chilled glass of Muscadel to enjoy with nuts, cured meats and cheeses in front of the fire.
The grapes for this Muscadel came from a single vineyard of 10-year-old Muscat de Frontignan bush vines which yielded only six tons per hectare. By harvesting when the berries had already become raisiny, a wonderful mélange of raisins, tea-leaf, honey, roses, luscious litchi and mango flavours were achieved in the wine.
The Du Toitskloof Red Muscadel is available from leading liquor outlets and the cellar and retails for about R45 per bottle.
