This is a Cinsault dominated wine eminates from a fairly cool vintage thus it is elegant with plenty of finesse. It has good depth on the palate with some developed notes of game and a good acidity. Although it is not a heavy wine, it has good staying power on the palate and will be very pleasing to Bordeaux drinkers and Lebasnese lovers alike.

“Aromas of blackberry, cherry preserves, white chocolate and a hint of green pepper prepare the taste buds for flavors of forest-fruit, smoked pork, black pepper, violet and almond blossom. A trio of fruit, savory tones and spice travels across the palate on a layer of smooth tannins, leading to a smoky finish.” M.D. (12/31/2014)
Château Musar Blanc comes from two ancient native varieties that grow in the Bekaa Valley. The Obaideh variety grows at the foot of the hill on rocky and calcareous soils and the Merwah is planted on the hill on calcareous gravel soils at an altitude of 1,400 metres. They are cultivated using traditional agriculture and the harvest is low-yield but high-quality.
Château Musar Blanc is a mature white wine with intense aromas of ripe white fruits, citrus fruits and nuts. On the palate it is creamy, rich and dry with seductive notes and a long and persistent finish.
A deep purple tint on the rim with delicious flavours of ripe strawberry, banana, juicy plums and rich, red cherry. Produced in an early drinking style with well integrated wood and a soft, smooth finish.
Klippenkop is an export label of the Robertson Winery situated in the Cape Winelands.
Established in 1941, Robertson Winery is recognised today as one of South Africa’s leading cellars. The fertile Robertson Valley with its variety of meso-climates and soil conditions create a wide spectrum of terroirs, allowing the estate to produce an exciting diversity of wine styles.
The winery has a long-standing tradition of dedicated grape-growing families, some of whom are 4th generation growers. Today, no less than 35 families, cultivating some 1900 hectares of vine, take pride in contributing to the success of the winery. Working in close partnership with our viticulturist, Briaan Stipp, they are committed to identifying the vineyard sites best suited to specific cultivars and to nurturing the grapes to optimum flavour and varietal character.
The fruit was sourced from 35 specially selected grape growing families in the Robertson Valley. Vines are grown in deep cool alluvial soil that is rich in lime and receives an annual rainfall of only 280 mm per year. Fruit was harvested very early in the morning from the last week of February to the middle of March. The Chenin Blanc vines are planted on the riverbanks with a row direction from northwest to southeast to utilize the prevailing sea breeze. The sea breeze cools down the fruit, extends the ripening period and builds up concentrated flavours in the grapes. The average annual rainfall is supplemented by controlled drip irrigation from the Breede River.
Gentle pressing of the grapes followed by using a Pneumatic bag press to capture the delicate fruit component. The wine was made reductively to prevent any oxidation and to ensure that natural flavours of the grapes could be retained. Fermentation happened slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 18 days at 13¢ªC.
