Lion Hunt red muscadel dessert wine is made at the Seidelberg Winery situated in Paarl close to Stellenbosch in South Africa. This particular winery has been established since 1692 when it was originally known as De Leuwen Jagt.
Although the name of the vineyard and winery changed to Seidelberg in 1997 after ownership was taken over by some Germans the bottles still carry the De Leuwen Jagt label. Even though the vineyard may have changed hands the methods used for creating Lion Hunt red muscadel wines remains the same.
As with all wines made at this particular winery the grapes, which are used to create the Lion Hunt, are harvested by hand. Once the grapes have been harvested they are then carefully sorted through any grapes that don’t meet the wineries stringent quality standards are thrown away. This helps to ensure that the quality of the wine produced is of the highest possible.
Once the right sorts of grapes have been selected then the process of turning them into premium wines can begin. Unlike many other wineries that produce such wines you will find that when it comes to making Lion Hunt Red Muscadel, Seidelberg Wineries like to use centuries old traditions alongside modern technology. This helps them to carefully nurture each grape harvested to ensure that you can enjoy a dessert wine that is very decadent. It also helps to ensure that this particular dessert wine has the right mixture of cinnamon and raisin flavors in it.
