The II Centuries Collection
A celebration of two centuries of skill, tradition and heritage, II Centuries forms the apex of the multi-tiered range of wines produced by Nederburg. All single-varietal wines, the “best of best” collection of hand-made wines are produced from grapes sourced from the best vines within top-performing vineyards jointly identified by our highly-skilled winemaking and viticultural teams.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from unirrigated vineyards in the Simonsberg ward of the Paarl area. The vines, around 33 years old, are situated at altitudes of 300m to 400m 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.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 24° Balling during February and March.

in the cellar : The grape bunches were sorted at the cellar, ensuring that only the best quality berries were crushed. The crushed berries were cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 24° to 28° C for a period of 10 days. The wine was matured in first-fill French oak barrels for 28 months.
