Nederburg Edelrood 2019
Nederburg’s core range of varietal and blended wines is an expression of its proud legacy of winemaking excellence, dating back to 1791. These classically styled, foodfriendly wines with abundant fruit flavours, elegance and finesse, treasure the integrity of the grapes in every step of the wine-growing and winemaking journey. Every drop demonstrates an unwavering commitment to world-class vineyard and cellar skills.
The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling and Cape Town districts, both cool climate winegrowing areas with the benefit of slower ripening of the grapes to achieve greater flavour intensity. The vines are grown in granite soils with good water-holding capacity, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity, adding to the freshness and longevity of the wine. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to a well-balanced acidity, in turn contributing to better tannin structure and fruit expression as well as deeper colour intensity.
Attractive aromas of rich cherry and berry fruits with subtle fennel, liquorice and cigar box.
Black cherry and ample hedgerow fruits that vie with tobacco leaf, cigar box and cedar adding a savoury nuance, along with spice highlights. Rich, smooth, supple and elegantly poised.
Delicious with oxtail and other meat casseroles and stews, grilled red meat as well as robust pizza and pasta dishes.
