Our Wine of the Week: Muscat de Hambourg

Muscat de Hambourg from Stellenbosch Hills
Grown in only two vineyards in South Africa, this wine is part of our heritage and must be protected.  Its unctuous, sticky sweetness belies its great sophistication and good sugar/acid balance.  It has the ability to match with almost every dessert it is served with. We served it with panna cotta and raspberries and it was an excellent match. Stellenbosch Hills also produces a fortified version, La Serena. This is fortified with a 7 year old potstill brandy
