Buitenverwachting, meaning ‘beyond expectation’, belongs to the Mueller family, who have lovingly restored both its buildings and its reputation as a source of particularly elegant South African wine. Situated on the slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg, the history of the estate is rooted in the very heart of South Africa itself. Once part of the original Constantia Estate, founded by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the Cape. Buitenverwachting produces internationally acclaimed wines of great complexity, with unique aromatic profiles and extraordinary elegance, reflecting their cool-climate Constantia location.
The Buitenverwachting 1769 Muscat is a limited release, classic Constantia noble late harvest dessert wine made from the Muscat de Frontignan grape. It blooms with generous ripe apricot, melon, and baked apple characters, with sumptuous sweetness balanced by riveting natural acidity to a long succulent fresh finish.
