Tradition and talent blend with passion, precision and patience at Nederburg, where classically structured wines are made with vibrant fruit flavours. Nederburg’s hallmark combination of fruit and finesse continues to be rewarded around the world. The Paarl winery has earned five-star ratings for three wines in the both the 2013 and 2012 editions of Platter’s South African Wine Guide. In 2011, Nederburg was chosen as Platter’s Winery of the Year, with an unprecedented five wines across the multi-tiered range earning five-star ratings. In addition, cellarmaster Razvan Macici was crowned the 2012 Diners Club Winemaker of the Year and the winery itself announced the South African Producer of the Year at the 2012 International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC). These are just some of the many accolades earned by Nederburg where hand-crafted, micro-cuvées for specialist winelovers and beautifully balanced and accessible wines for everyday enjoyment are made with equal commitment.

Razvan Macici heads the team as Nederburg cellarmaster. He is supported by two winemakers who work closely under his direction. They are Wilhelm Pienaar, who produces the red wines and Natasha Williams, who makes the whites.

The grapes were sourced from unirrigated vineyards in the Simonsberg ward of the Paarl area. The vines, around 31 years old, are situated at altitudes of 300 m to 400 m above sea level. Individual vines within identified vineyards were chosen to provide fruit that stand out for their and for their exceptional concentration and depth of aromas and flavours as well as their fine balance of fruit, acid and sugar.
