Aromas of blackcurrants and cherries with violets and nuances of vanilla oak spice in the background. Nederburg earned the highest number of five-star ratings in the Platter’s South African Wine Guide, along with two other wineries.
Nederburg launched a series of individually-labelled gourmet wines as the Heritage Heroes collection, available exclusively in specialty wine shops and at fine dining restaurants. Each wine has been named after a prominent personality who played a role in shaping Nederburg’s reputation. The Anchorman Chenin Blanc is named to honour Philippus Wolvaart. (1791) Made from one of South Africa’s earliest-planted varietals, it pays tribute to the man who started it all at Nederburg. The Brew Master, a Bordeaux-style red, commemorates the skills and pursuit of excellence established by Johann Graue (1937).
The Beautiful Lady Gew?rztraminer recalls the elegantly gracious, sophisticated and lovely Ilse Graue, who introduced a tone of splendour to Nederburg and remained a loyal wife to Johann. (1937). The Airhawk wooded Sauvignon Blanc captures the spirit of their son, Arnold Graue, an immensely talented winemaker, with a huge appetite for life, who died tragically young. (1953) The Motorcycle Marvel is a Rhône-style red that exemplifies the exacting attitude and adventurous personality of the legendary G?nter Br?zel (1956).
