Du Preez Estate 1999 Hanepoot - Estate Wine White (South Africa)

Best Buy

This family winery's fortified wine is made every year, but only 200 cases make it to the U.S. What is a hanepoot? This “honey pot” of a wine is made from Muscat d'Alexandria, or Muscatel to some. In the bottle, it is full of complex flavors. Notes of luscious honey, candied lemon peel, dried pineapple, papaya and mango all vie for center stage. Extremely viscous and rich, this might benefit from a touch more acidity.
