Dark matter.

Yesterday the 2009, 1999, 1989 and 1979 vintages of Red Muscadel from Robertson estate Rietvallei. Maiden vintage under own label was 1975 and early bottlings were adorned with a crest inadvertently appropriated from the Spanish royal family, removed after a terse letter from the true owners.

Read the full story about Rietvallei Muscadel with particular focus on the reserve from a vineyard planted in 1908 in the September and last ever issue of Wine magazine (on sale in mid-August).
