87-year-old South African beauty

South African Muscadel is one of our most special and underrated wines. In their youth, they can be brashly sweet and thickly unctuous, but with time they offer an astonishing array of complexity and flavour. With high sugar, low pH and fortification from alcohol, their ability to age is almost unmatched; as is demonstrated in this rare 87-year-old beauty from KWV.

Newton Johnson Pinot Noir

Although thought to be from Paarl and Wellington grapes and late-bottled in the 1970s, little is known about this specific wine.

Showing a tawny-like character, it offers a green-tinge with bright yellow, burgundy and brown hues. Notes of baked prunes, raisins, earth, tobacco, star anise, roasted nuts, toffee and cold coffee show off an impressive depth of complexity. The palate is towering and rich with a firm acidity. The decades of ageing have melted the sugary sweetness into waves of joy. Astonishingly pure, yet completely exotic, the finish is hedonistic and extremely long.  

Having sold at the 2011 Nederburg Auction for R 6,500 and available from KWV at R 10,000 per bottle, this is an investment wine that will age for many decades. We have just 18 bottles available.
