Nederburg Wines Heritage Heros

IMG_3238ed

Award winning South African wine producer Nederburg Wines (with 200 years of history) has created a selection of limited edition, home made gourmet wines known as Heritage Heros. Each individually named, they have been made to honour some of the major figures in South Africa winemaking who have been a source of inspiration to award winning winemaker Razvan Macici.

The Anchorman - Chenin Blanc 2011

The Anchorman is named after Nederburg’s founder, Philippus Wolvaart, who bought the farm in 1791 and planted Chenin Blanc, amongst other varietals. He had the vision and courage to tame a wilderness and grow great wine. His fingertips are still on every wine we make.

The Motorcycle Marvel - Rhone Style Blend 2009

The Motorcycle Marvel honours the legendary winemaker Günter Brőzel, who was cellarmaster at Nederburg from 1956 to 1989. He played a leading role in building Nederburg’s reputation as the most awarded winery in South Africa

Vineyards: The Shiraz grapes were sourced from an award winning bock of trellised vines in the Philadelphia area while the Carignan and Grenache came from old bush vines in Paarl.
Colour:Dark intense red
Bouquet: An abundance of spicy, peppery berry and sweet fruit characters.
Palate: A rich and intense, full bodied explosion of flavour with ripe and silky tannins and an excellent integration between fruit and wood.

The other 2 Heritage Heros Wines which I have not get to try is The Young Airhawk - Sauvignon Blanc 2012 and The Brew Master - Bordeaux Style Blend 2009. Nederburg’s II Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon will also debut in Singapore. A celebration of two centuries of skill, tradition and heritage, II Centuries forms the apex of the multi-tiered range of wines produced by Nederburg. All single-varietal wines, the “best of best” collection of hand-made wines are produced from grapes sourced from the best vines within top-performing vineyards jointly identified by our highly-skilled winemaking and viticultural teams.

The Heritage Heroes range is available at S$39 per bottle and the II Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon is available at S$79 per bottle at DFS. They are also available in popular dining venues and hotel outlets.
