Description

Nederburg Winemasters Reserve Edelrood is a Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot red wine blend and is part of the Winemasters Reserve range of wines, their most classic, and popular, range of wines.

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. Along the way Nederburg have also become famous for creating Edelkeur in 1969, the first noble late harvest wine from South Africa, and the Nederburg Auction in 1975.

Grapes for the Nederburg Winemasters Reserve Edelrood are sourced from the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Darling wine growing region from vineyards planted between 1990 and 1998. The vines are grown in decomposed granite on south-westerly facing slopes, situated some 50m to 150m above sea level. Some of the vines receive irrigation.

Nederburg Edelrood is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in a combination of first, second and third fill barrels for upto 15 months. 

Tasting Notes

Nederburg has a bright, red colour and complex flavours such as delicious blackcurrant, tabacco leaf and dense mocha. Soft and elegant, the palate is laced with minty ripe fruit and spicy vanilla, result of the increased portion of barrel maturation.

Food Pairing

Try with oxtail, casseroles, beef, quiches, strogonoff, bobotie, roast venison or even pizza and pasta dishes.
