Muratie, a family owned estate, was established in the 17th century by European colonialists, although as a name Muratie was not used until the early 1900s. The estate is in the shadow of the Simonsberg mountain north of Stellenbosch, east of Cape Town and consists of 44ha of vineyards. Martin Melck, a mercenary from Prussia, and who became one of the wealthiest people in the Cape, owned Muratie from 1763 to 1781, which he bought for his daughter Anna Catherina.
The Martin Melck Cabernet Sauvignon was made from three different blocks on the estate. The vines were planted in 1993 and 1998. All the vineyards are North West facing and at an elevation of 260m above sea level. The root stocks are Richter 101 and 114. Hand harvested, the grapes were crushed, destalked and pumped into a combination of stainless steel and open fermenters. A controlled fermentation was ensured and regular pump-overs and Punch-downs were done. Matured in 10% new French oak for 20 months.
