Muscat d’ Alexandrie has its origins in ancient Egypt. The vines were first brought to the Cape of Good Hope, in the mid 1600’s, by the early Dutch settlers. Throughout the following centuries, the variety has played a very important role, in grape growing in the Cape.
The vines from which the wine is produced, are mature in age and nature. They are planted on old and weathered soils of decomposed granite, in close proximity to False Bay.
B VINTNERS explores vineyards and celebrates the rich heritage of the Cape of Good Hope, with artisan crafted wines. de ALEXANDRIA was made with minimal intervention, a complete dry style, effortlessly expressing the beauty of this African variety.
The wine reveals itself, as a unique discovery, for this special indigenous African variety. The bouquet is well defined, with aromatics of musk, pressed white flowers and lychee. The palate is fresh and citrus-driven on the entry, very tensile, and bone dry on the finish with a lingering saline aftertaste.
