Description

Nederburg Winemasters Noble Late Harvest is a dessert wine which is part of Nederburg’s Winemasters Reserve range of wines. Nederburg has a reputation for producing wines of fruit and finesse and earned five-star ratings for three wines in the 2012 edition of Platter’s South African Wine Guide. Three five-star ratings is the highest number achieved by any producer in the new edition of the guide and Nederburg shares this distinction with two other wineries.

Nederburg Winemasters Noble Late Harvest is made from grapes sourced from vineyards in the Paarl and Durbanville wine-growing regions and is bottled as a Wine of Origin Western Cape. The vines are located at an altitude of 120 m to 160 m above sea level and were planted between 1984 and 1993 on Tukulu and Oakleaf soils. The vines are irrigated.

For the Nederburg Winemasters Noble Late Harvest only grapes affected with Noble Rot (the beneficial form of the Botrytis cinerea mould) are carefully hand-selected at harvest. Noble Rot basically dries out the grapes causing them to become slightly raisined. This concentrates the sweetness and the complexity of flavours and aromas in the grapes. The grapes are fully de-stemmed in the cellars prior to pressing, followed by cool-fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 16°C for a period of six weeks. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation, but it is put through a separator to prevent fermentation from occurring once the desired sugar level had been reached. The blend of grapes for the 2018 is 56% Chenin Blanc, 39% Muscat de Frontignan 3% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Grassa De Cotnari. Residual sugar is 211 g/L

The Winemaker is Stellenbosch born and bred Natasha Boks. She is responsible for making Nederburg’s white wines under the direction of cellar master Andrea Freeborough. Boks won a scholarship to study viticulture and winemaking at the University of Stellenbosch and graduated in 2007.

Serve With
