Heaven On Earth Sweet Wine 375ml Half bottle     
Sku: 1559477*

A dessert wine with a South African twist. The sweet Muscat grapes have been sun dried on organic Rooibos (“Red Bush”) tea leaves (a tea native to South Africa), Vin de Paille style. The idea is to gently infuse the naturally caffeine and tannin -free tea with the grapes during the drying, without adding tea to the must. The grapes are dried to 50 % moisture-loss, lying on the tea before crushing and de-stemming. This creates a truly unique one-of-a-kind wine that is like a little sip of Heaven here on Earth.

Tasting notes
A superb dessert wine, light-to-medium gold in color. The nose is very fragrant and hints at roses, apricots and honey on a hot windless day. The delicate flavors of the roses and apricots come through on the taste and are held together by wisps of Rooibos tea, ending with pine nuts.

Wine maker notes
Produced from the finest Muscat grapes from the cooler coastal area of the Olifants river valley region. The grapes are first cooled to 0 Deg C before destemming and gas macerated for 7 days at 13 – 16 Deg C. Natural fermentation takes place in stainless steel or flexi-tanks by controlled temperature increases to 26 Deg C for a further 80 – 95 days. All though this is a sweet dessert wine it is treated in the cellar the same as a regular white wine to keep the sugars from becoming overbearing. All pump overs are done by inert gas and gravity, once the ferment is complete the wine is tank aged for atleast 3 months before bottling. Bottling with the latest technology and onsite ingenuity.

Technical notes
Alcohol 11.43 % Total Acidity 6.3 g/l PH 3.85 Residual Sugar 128.3 g/l Total SO2 <56 ppm Free SO2 22 ppm

Food pairing
Great with rich cheeses, poured over apple pie, vanilla ice-cream or just on the rocks under the stars. It’s pure heaven at first sip.
