Muratie Ansela 1998

This wine is named after Ansela van de Caab, a child born into slavery. In 1699 the governor of the Cape granted a piece of land to a German, Lourens Campher. He married Ansela after she was freed and together they built a humble house, which still exists, and they planted the first vines on Muratie.
A deep velvet hue. Meaty extract complimented with green peppery nose. Hints of cigar box and vanilla. This is a full-bodied wine, with a good balance between the acid and tannins. A excellent food wine.
