Skurfberg. Citrusdal Mountain. Arbeidsend. These names refer to what is arguably the most Burgundy like area in South Africa. An area where only a handful of winemakers have access to these precious grapes.

Basie Van Lill is the farmer and grower on the Arbeidsend farm and he has been awarded ‘Grower of the Year’ by Tim Atkin MW.

From a renowned wine critic, comes these powerful statements;

‘These are arguably the most terroir-specific wines in our country, making the Skurfberg our very own Burgundy. I believe that in this special place, the terroir has more influence on the wine than grape variety.’

This pure Muscat d’Alexandrie straw wine comes from a 50 year old single vineyard and is an utter delight to drink. Packaged in a beautiful presentation box, this wine also makes the ideal gift!

‘Something of a bargain among the Cape’s top stickies, this pure West Coast Muscat d’Alexandrie straw wine has flavours of dates, dried fig and orange blossom, impressive density, 250 grams of sugar, balancing freshness and no wood at all.’ 94 points Tim Atkin MW.
