Pinotage is truly a South African creation. Nederburg’s history can be traced back to 1791, when records show the granting of a tract of land to a German immigrant, Philip Wolvaart, in the Paarl Valley who named the farm in honor of his Commissioner General, Sebastian Nederburgh.
Intense red color with ripe berry flavors. Lovely cherry, raspberry fruitiness on the palate.
Wine Maker Notes
The grapes are vinified in Nederburg’s modern winery using traditional techniques. The wine is matured in 300 liter barrels and large oak vats to impart a sophisticated touch of oak. Serve with hearty braised beef or a creamy gratin.
Suave and stylish bouquet with aromas of overripe berries, rich plum and blackcurrant with spicy, earthy undertones that signal a Pinotage. Elegant and medium-bodied on the palate with hints of chocolate and a smoky finish. Tannins are supple while providing a solid backbone to this fine example of South Africa’s flagship wine.
