The Nuy (pronounced Ney) Wine Cellar cooperative was established in 1963 and now has 23 members. They are one of the smallest cooperatives in south Africa but they have a big reputation.
At their winery in Worcester, at the foot off the Langeberg Mountains, they make a range of wines including red and white muscadels (muscats) but Society members will be most familiar with the red version we have purchased over the last few years.
Despite a tradition of making it production of muscadel has been in decline in recent years so is now only 12% of the winery’s output but the wines have a great reputation and represent astonishing value for money.
This pale-pink strawberry-scented South African classic is perfect with chocolate or cheese. Alternatively, enjoy in a tall glass with ice, soda, fresh ginger, a sprig of mint and a squeeze of lemon. Bottled ready to drink and can be kept open in the fridge
