Purportedly, amongst the first four wine grape varieties planted in the Cape by Jan van Riebeeck back in 1655 and from which the first wine was made on 2nd February 1659, Muscadel is truly a part of the Cape’s history. A grape prized for its versatility, enabling the farmers of old to dry the grapes for raisins, pick them for table grapes, produce delectable jams, craft aromatic dry white wines, fortified wines and even distil brandy.

The Nel’s of Boplaas have fine heritage of crafting fine Muscadel dating back to 1880. Crafted from the sweetest sun-ripened Muscadel, hand harvested early in the morning, crushed and allowed a brief period of skin contact, gently pressed and then fortified with wine spirit to preserve the full aromatic and flavour spec­trum. Allowed to mature in stainless steel tanks, with the best of each vintage blended together, the final wine is blended and bottled after a light filtration.
