Grapes for the Myburgh Bros. Viognier were gently whole-bunch pressed and the partially clarified juice was fermented in old, well-seasoned 400 and 225-litre barrels. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Peach, apricot and spicy aromas.
Palate: Fruit driven entry, notes of stone fruits like peach and apricot following through from the nose. Medium-bodied with a rich and oily texture.
Finish: A dry and long finish. Good acidity balancing out the fruity and rich nature of the wine.
Joostenberg was purchased by the Myburgh family in 1879, and ownership has remained with the family ever since. In 1947 winemaking ceased, and for the following 52 years grapes were sold to the local co-op. In 1999, brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh, the 5th generation of Myburghs to farm this land, resumed the winemaking tradition. Today Joostenberg is a small, family owned and managed wine farm producing an exclusive range of wine with special emphasis on individuality, natural winemaking and environmental accountability through organic farming — full organic status was achieved in 2012.
