56HUNDRED or 5 600 guilders was the price founder, Philippus Wolvaart paid in 1791 for the farm in Paarl he was to call Nederburg. Bright, fresh, succulent, soft and smooth-drinking, these premium wines are a tribute to him. He had the vision to recognize the wine-growing potential of his land and the optimism to clear an untamed property and establish a flourishing farm that continues to thrive today, more than two centuries later.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Malmesbury and Philadelphia areas. The vines, situated on mostly south to south-westerly-facing slopes and grafted onto Filloksera-resistant rootstocks Richter 99 and 101, received either supplementary or drip irrigation.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 21º to 22.5º Balling, during February.

in the cellar : The fruit was received at the cellar, the bunches were destemmed and the juice allowed a short period of skin contact for added aromatic expression. The settled free-run juice was carefully fermented in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature.

This wine is made from Chenin blanc grapes.
