Nederburg The Winemasters Grenache 2015

Colour: Dark red with mature hue
Bouquet: Flavours reminding one of sweet spice, red fruit like cherries with very subtle oaking.

Range Background
Nederburg’s premium wines are accommodated in The Winemasters ensemble, named to honour the long-established tradition of winemaking excellence. These classically styled, food-friendly wines with refreshing fruit flavours, elegance and finesse, treasure the integrity of our grapes in every step of the wine-growing and winemaking journey. Every glass demonstrates an unwavering commitment to world-class vineyard and cellar skills.

This wine, produced exclusively for Woolworths, is a blend of Grenache (85%) and Carignan (15%).

about the harvest: All grapes were sourced from low-yielding, mature Paarl and Klapmuts bush, dryland vineyards, producing 4 to 5 tons per hectare. Small berries, with dark, highly concentrated fruit were hand-picked picked at full ripeness with sweet, juicy and spicy flavours.

in the cellar : Each block was individually vinified and fermented in open tanks. Once taken off the skins and malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine was matured in a selection of third- and fourth-fill French and Romanian oak barrels or came in contact with French and American oak.

Cellarmaster: Andrea Freeborough
