Day 4 - A Vineyard with a view!


Today's visit is to Muratie Wine Farm - we are here for a wine tasting and to enjoy everything this wine farm has to offer.


Firstly the wine tasting.


There is an extensive wine selection here; we have been stocking Muratie wines now for over 2 years. Again today we are researching their list to see if there is anything we can add.


The first wine we sampled is the Lady Alice MCC Rose, a personal favourite of mine! We are very lucky and have been offered to try any of the large selections of wines available. If you get the chance to visit the tasting room it offers several different options to suit your taste. This is a lovely idea as it would not be possible to appreciate all the wines on offer with such an extensive list.


The whites we sampled were their Sauvignon Blanc and a blend called Laurens Campher. Not only are the wines delicious but the names all have a history to them. The blend is named after a young German soldier who started farming at Muratie in 1685 and his love for Ansela van de Caab (the name now given to their red Cabernet Sauvignon) ended in the birth of three children!




We chose a further 4 reds to try between us and were treated to the Ronnie Melk Syrah Family Selection. The family collection is the top of the range of wines made here and we stock the Cabernet Sauvignon already so it was good to try the Syrah. This wine is made in extremely limited amounts and each bottle is individually numbered. Obviously, the price reflects the quality but the pleasure of drinking this wine is worth it. Remember the saying below :


Drinking good wine with good food and good company

is one of life's most civilised pleasures.


Secondly the food.


We moved from the tasting area to the restaurant where again we were treated to a scrumptious lunch - all made on the premises with fresh seasonal ingredients accompanied by a glass of wine.


Now it was time to relax and watch the world go by. Just before sunset a folk band set up and played for a couple of hours until the sun went down and everyone was feeling very mellow.
