Rietvallei Red Muscadel 1979
By Christian Eedes, 13 July 2011
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).
