Muratie Iconic Wine Awards Nov 2012

As Publisher Andrew McDowall elaborated on the theme of Platter’s SA Wines 2013, “Today much attention is focused on the nuts and bolts of wine, but rather less on the mystery, excitement and allure. With our emphasis this edition on ‘backstories’, Platter’s is looking to showcase the passion, dreams, challenges and successes which not only form the backdrop to the wines featured in the guide, but also make South Africa one of the most fascinating and dynamic areas in the world of wine.”
Nothing could be more appropriate of Muratie, with its myriad ‘backstories’ reaching as far back as the 17th century, as one of the oldest wineries in the Cape Winelands. The Melck family has recently honoured the Estate’s fascinating history by naming Muratie’s Iconic Wines after extraordinary iconic characters from Muratie’s colourful past, each with its own enchanting story described on the back label, thus ‘every wine tells a story’.
