This wine is named after the 'Geelkapel' snake the venomous Cape Cobra, that can morph into a brillant yellow after which this wine is named. From Adi Badenhorst's latest vintage - Muscat de Frontignan and White Muskadel, handpicked whole bunches, gently crushed by foot and naturally fermented for 2 weeks.


Press Note:

Neal Martin, vinous.com The 2017 Geelkapel Muscat de Frontignan comes from a single vineyard and is fermented on the skins for 10 days and finished in cask. It has a distinctive bouquet of lychee, orange zest, chamomile and, of course, a touch of Muscat. The palate is medium-bodied with a waxy texture, and a fine bead of acidity cuts through the waxy-textured yellow fruit, sour lemon, grapefruit and lemongrass. Not incredibly long, but very well defined and fresh. Drink now and over the next six to eight years.
