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 recognise 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 Darling, Paarl and Philadelphia areas. The vines, planted between 1969 and 1998, are grown in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils at altitudes ranging between 80m and 120m above sea level. Grafted onto nematode resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14, they received supplementary irrigation from an overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 21º to 22º Balling during February.

in the cellar : 

The fruit was crushed and gently pressed to extract excellent quality juice. After clarification the juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 15° C for three weeks. The vinification processes were strictly controlled to preserve the characteristic fruit flavours.

This wine is made from Sauvignon blanc grapes.
