Description

Nederburg Rose is a fruity, medium-dry style of South African Rosé and is a multi-varietal wine produced from grapes grown in the Paarl, Wellington, Durbanville, Stellenbosch and Darling wine producing areas. It is usually a blend of Pinotage, Shiraz, Carignan, Cinsault and Grenache.

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 Nederburg Rose were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Wellington, Durbanville, Stellenbosch and Darling areas. The vines, planted between 1985 and 1995 at altitudes of 50m to 150m above sea level, are grown in a variety of soils and terroirs well suited to the cultivars. The vines received supplementary irrigation. The fruit for the Nederburg Rosé is hand and machine-harvested, crushed and allowed 4 to 6 hours of skin contact before pressing to extract the delicate pink colour and varietal aromas. Fermented in stainless steel.

Nederburg Rose 2020 is a blend of 44% Shiraz, 22% Pinotage, 19% Grenache, 6% Cinsault and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting Notes

Nederburg Rose is a beautiful deep pink colour. The nose is packed full of juicy red berry, strawberry and cherry flavours with a hint of apricot. These aromas all follow on to the palate with a hint of herbaceous character and a clean, refreshing, slightly off-dry finish with balancing acidity.

Food Pairing

Nederburg Rose is superb on its own or enjoyed with smoked salmon, summer salads or vegetarian dishes.
