Description

Nederburg Baronne is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This is an iconic South African red wine. It was created in 1973 by the legendary Nederburg cellar-master Günter Brözel, the man honoured in Nederburg’s “Heroes” range by the Motorcycle Marvel. It sits alongside the Winemaster range which includes a Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and Edelrood.

Nederburg has a long wine-making history stretching back over 200 years to 1791 when Phillipus Bernadus Wolvaart was granted ownership of 49 hectares of land, in what is now Paarl, by the Dutch East India Company. He called his new property Nederburgh and immediately set about clearing land and planting vines. By 1808 he had planted over 63,000 vines laying the foundations for what was to become the wine company we know today. Nederburg has changed hands many times through the years but was owned by the large South African wine and spirit company, Distell, for many years. Most recently, in 2023, Distell was taken over by Heineken and integrated into Heineken Beverages, a company created by the merger of Distell and Namibia Breweries. Since 2021 the team at Nederburg has been led by cellar master, and seasoned winemaker, Samuel Viljoen. he is ably assisted by winemakers Zinaschke Steyn, Imellia Prins and Jamie Williams. Nederburg remains one of South Africa’s most awarded wineries and their wines display a hallmark combination of fruit and finesse.

The grapes for the Nederburg Baronne are sourced from vineyards in the Paarl and Stellenbosch wine-growing areas. The vineyards were all planted between 1990 and 1998 on soils originating from decomposed granite located on south-westerly to westerly facing slopes, situated some 300 m above sea level. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine.

After hand-harvesting the fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins, with selected yeast strains, in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks. After fermentation and completion of malolactic fermentation the wine wine was drained from the skins, and racked from the lees onto a selection of oak where the wine matured for approximately six months before blending.

The 2019 Nederburg Baronne is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Shiraz and 15% other varieties.
