THE GOOD GUYS MUSE
Attractive, medium to deep red ruby colour. The nose entices a red and wild berry, salty liquorice and spicy profile. Juicy, energetic wine with all the fine flavours promised on the nose and a lovely refreshing palate which lingers long after that first sip. Long, dry and easy finish. Best between 2019 and 2026. Perfect to enjoy with a typical South African braai.
Handpicked and carefully sorted in small crates in the cool mornings. Destemming and gentle crushing directly into small open top tanks and oak vats. Spontaneous natural yeast fermentation.
Time on the skins 5 - 7 days, with caps of the skins punched down (pigeage) 2 to 3 times a day. Single pressing in traditional basket press and malolactic fermentation in barrels. Maturation in older French oak barrels for 20 months, with several rackings to gradually clarify the wine. The wine was bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered.
