Rustenberg sits in a valley of the Simonsberg Mountains in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Wine has been produced here since 1682, and the estate is now dedicated to making wines predominantly from Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as a range of others.
Muscadel is one of the hidden treasures of the wine world, with these sweet dessert wines delighting palates for centuries. Muscadel is one of the oldest grape varieties in South Africa, and is a variety that is capable of being made into delicious wine, as well as being served in its whole fruit state as table grapes.
The Rustenberg Red Muscadel is made by fortifying grape juice in order to produce a dessert-style wine. Grapes are harvested at high sugar levels, pressed and the juice fortified with neutral grape and brandy spirit. This addition preserves the natural flavours of the juice while ensuring that no fermentation can take place in the wine, and also preserving the natural sugar from the grape juice, created a rich, sweet, stable dessert wine.
