Eye-pleasing Changes And The Return Of An Old Favourite

As some of you might have noticed, our Rietvallei Red Muscadel 2018 has seen a change in shape and size. This wine now boasts an elegant 500 ml bottle and has a new cork closure. Thus far, this new-look Muscadel has proved its worth by having received a 91-point rating at the Prescient Sweet Wine & Fortifieds Report 2020 hosted my Winemag.co.za.  The Rietvallei Red Muscadel 2018 is full-bodied and rich, but also gentle on the palate. A floral, muscat bouquet is evident on the nose, with a typical raisiny sweetness and an intense, rich flavour that lingers on the taste, while the ideal acidity balances and complements the sweetness.

 

Rietvallei Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Double Platinum at National Wine Challenge

Rietvallei Wine Estate is proud to announce clinching a coveted Double Platinum award in this year’s National Wine Challenge / Top 100 SA Wines hosted by buybetterwine.com – with the Rietvallei Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 being placed under the competition’s Top 100 wines. Our Rietvallei Natural Unwooded Chardonnay 2019 was also a top contender this year and won a Double Gold medal.

 

Apple and Quince Crumble

Nothing says Autumn quite like an apple crumble. This comfortingly cosy dessert is made all the more warming with the addition of tenderly poached quince and a few measures of Rietvallei Muscadel. Cheerful red Royal Gala apples are roasted in honey, bay and Muscadel and blanketed under a mixture of oats, sticky brown sugar and butter. Make the quince ahead of time, as the excess is delicious with custard for a speedy after-dinner treat.
