In Stock & Ready To Ship!

This delightful orange wine is made of mostly Muscat with a touch of Semillon. It makes for a beautifully fresh and bright wine with bold notes of apricot, candied lemon and a touch of sea salt and nuts for that lovely fresh bite. The 10 days on skins gives a chewy wine gum notes with fine tannin to coat the palate and an oxidative nutty finish. Fresh and complex, making a fantastic gastronomic wine.

Angus Paul made his first vintage in 2020, creating wines with a focus on South African Heritage, using Chenin, Muscat and Pinotage. The wines are made with minimal intervention to make quality wines that truly express the varieties characteristics. The labels are inspired by the ‘Age of exploration’ when the South African wine industry was founded, with graphics of superstitious tales from exploratory sailors.

Pairs well with Oysters and traditional Japanese cuisine.

South African wine has a history dating back to 1659 with the first bottle being produced in Cape Town by its founder and governor Jan van Riebeeck.

South Africa is located at the tip of Africa with its wine regions located near the coastal influences of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. These regions have a mostly Mediterranean climate that is marked by intense sunlight and dry heat.

Muscat

The muscat grape comes in many forms, the delicvate Muscat à Petit Grains, floral Muscat de Alexandria, and dark Muscat de Hambourg to name the three most popular varieties. In Spain it is produces rich Moscatel, whilst in Italy it is the grape used in wonderfully summery Moscato d'Asti.

Muscat produces the most "grapey" flavours of any wine grape (which so often taste of anything but grapes!)
