A carefully curated, exclusive and unique collection of optimally-cellared wines, made by hand from grapes sourced from top-performing Cape vineyards, only during exceptional vintages.

These age-worthy limited-edition wines feature labels hand-written by Nederburg’s cellarmaster. They reflect the winery’s long-standing tradition of detailed craftsmanship, honed in equal measures by the passion and precision of every member of the team, in every step they take, from soil to glass. Each hand-crafted wine tells the story of its particular vintage and provenance.

in the vineyard : This wine is hand-crafted using grapes sourced from individually identified dry-farmed vines. Specific bunches and berries were selected in the cellar for vinification.

about the harvest: The hand-picked, carefully selected fruit was harvested at full ripeness during February and March.

in the cellar : Controlled fermentation, with gentle mixing of the grape skins, took place in stainless steel tanks. After completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured for 24 months in a combination of first-fill French, Hungarian and American small oak. Barrels were individually racked and regularly evaluated on taste before a selection was made for the final assemblage.
