Underfoot the land breathes. From the centuries-old oaks to the resting cellar and original homestead, a romance lingers of love, passion, grapes, art, life – of the story of a wine farm in Africa.
Comfortable with visitors, but not crowds, the farm echoes old-world hospitality. The environment is authentic, the methods traditional and the surrounds, beautiful and unmanicured. The farm itself exudes honesty, humbleness and integrity – qualities and resonate in every drop of Muratie wine.
Cultivars: Tinta Barocca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Francesca, Souzao
A positive bouquet of aromas comes forth from this fortified wine, with floral notes of violets, perfume and rose petals vying for space with the ripe black cherries, dark chocolate and sweet spice. A seamlessly-integrated port which marries alcohol, fruit and acidity into a delicious bundle of flavour – expect plum cake, sloes, mulberry fruit and a generous seasoning of perfumed spice – supported by a sturdy, but unobtrusive backbone of tannin and finishing positively, indicating there is plenty more to come over the next ten years.
