muratie wine tasting

Having been granted to Laurens Campher in 1685, Muratie is one of the earliest of the Cape’s Wine Estates. Some things change at Muratie, some things stay the same. The tasting room and cellar sales rooms are exactly as they were when Muratie was farmed by the feisty Annemarie Canitz, whose father George Paul Canitz bought the farm in 1927.

Ode to Pinot

Without doubt the centre of the Cape wine universe, Stellenbosch boasts a myriad of producers, varieties and styles but only a handful are dedicated to the most fickle red variety of them all – Pinot Noir.

Those who can be singled out for particular dedication to the grape include Meerlust, Muratie, Vriesenhof and relative newcomer Pepin Conde, all of whom are beginning to master – if it’s possible – the heart break grape.
