Nederburg | Taste Sensation at The Manor

With a proud history, Nederburg Wines, is home to one of South Africa’s best-loved and most awarded heritage wineries. The beautiful gabled and thatched-roof manor house, completed in 1800, is where you can taste a selection of familiar or exclusive vintages whilst gazing at the vineyards and beautiful landscapes.

The Vintage Vault Tasting is a rare opportunity to get to taste, learn and discover some exquisite wines that have stood the test of time. Booking is essential.

Nederburg Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Crisp with a touch of lime green. Aromas of a highveld thunderstorm and flinty, grassy smell with zingy lemon and granadilla notes. Dusty flint with lemon zest and marmalade flavours can be found on a balanced, refreshing palate. Vivacious acidity is poised by juicy fruit nuances with some granadilla and tropical notes noticeable.

Nederburg Chardonnay 2019

Beautiful citrus and and stone fruit aromas such as peach and nectarines that follows through on the palate. Like a mouthful of juicy, tangy fruit salad with a light drizzle of honey adding richness. Delicious and refreshing.

Nederburg Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Red fruit aromas with black cherries, chocolate and a hint spice with a layered, textured mouthfeel. Smooth and elegant with a long, lingering finish.

The Winemasters Edelrood 2017

A fed blend made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Delicious aromas of red fruit and berries. Soft and juicy with ripe fruit and spicy oak flavours. Soft tannins and well-integrated oak add to the complexity of the wine.

Nederburg Manor House Shiraz 2017

Deep ruby red. Aromas of ripe dark berries and black pepper with hints of oak. Dense ripe black fruit, vanilla nuances and sweet wood spice with a firm structure, velvety tannins and a long finish.

The WineMasters Noble Late Harvest 2018

Aromas of honeyed marmalade and peach preserves. Beautiful yet a subtle balance between acid and sugar with dried fruit, pineapple and citrus flavours.

Noble Late Harvest is produced from botrytised, sustainably-grown wine grapes, a blend of Chenin blanc, Muscat de Frontignan, Sauvignon blanc and Grasa de Cotnari.

Nederburg Auction Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Nederburg’s Private Bin/Auction Reserve collection, pioneered by Brözel, is still produced exclusively for sale on the annual Nederburg Auction. Established in 1975, it celebrates the rare, unique and exceptional.

Nederburg Private Bin R121 Shiraz 2009

Blackberries and plums, smokyness, wood, earth, tobacco and vanilla oak on nose. Good acidity and balanced tannins on palate. Full-bodied and long fruity finish. Fine structure and balance. Lively ripe fruity texture.

Nederburg The Beautiful Lady 2016

The Beautiful Lady takes its name from a description of Ilse Graue, the wife of Johann Graue, a German immigrant who bought Nederburg in 1937. He is credited with introducing far- reaching wine-growing and winemaking changes at Nederburg. She brought a gracious sense of hospitality to Nederburg, planting a fine rose garden that still occupies pride of place in the garden. It was former cellar-master Günter Brözel who called her “the beautiful lady”. She made him welcome when he joined Nederburg as winemaker in 1953. The grapes for this wine are sourced from the same Stellenbosch farm used by Günter Brözel to produce the Gewürztraminer entry that earned him the title of Diners Club Winemaker of the Year in 1985.

Light straw yellow in colour. Typical Gewürztraminer nuances of rose petals and Turkish delight on the nose with alluring sweet litchi and pineapple notes. Elegant, nuanced and well-balanced with floral notes flowing onto the palate. Its sweetness is more suggested than overt, enlivened by good acidity. It closes on a lovely, lingering finish.

The Motorcycle Marvel 2017

A Rhône-style blend of Grenache, Carignan and Shiraz with a small percentage of Mourvèdre and Cinsault added, that honours the legendary winemaker Günter Brözel, who was cellarmaster at Nederburg from 1956 to 1989.

The aromas of sweet spices, berries and dried fruits. The palate is flattered by a rich mouthfeel and intense taste explosion. The shades of juicy red fruits meet ripe and silky tannins, which are wonderfully integrated into the fruit and wood. These hints are rounded off by a hint of spice.
