Nederburg Shiraz 2018
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, Cape Town and Paarl wine-growing areas. The vines are grown in granite and shale soils, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity and resulting freshness. 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.
A gentle whiff of coffee bean and fynbos with succulent plum and cherry aromas in the background.
Packed with plum, black cherry and a touch of leather. Dried herbs and fynbos follow through to a velvety mouthfeel with a modest tannin grip. Elegantly structured and rewardingly long.
Great with Mediterranean meat dishes such as spicy lamb, souvlaki or kebabs as well as with traditional roasts, oxtail and barbecued steaks.
