For our skin fermented wines we like to use aromatic varietals. Muscat de Frontignan is a grape with a rich history here in South Africa however mostly used for fortified

wines or sweet wine production.

The name “geelkapel” refers to the Cape Cobra, a venomous serpent found around here and some morphs have a brilliant yellow colour after which we have named this wine.
