Nederburg’s 56Hundred range of refreshing, fruity and smooth-drinking wines takes its name from the price of fifty-six hundred guilders that Philippus Wolvaart paid in 1791 for the farm he was to call Nederburg. 
Nederburg. He had the vision to recognise the wine-growing potential of this 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 across the Western Cape. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine. The different microclimates and soil types associated with each vineyard add to the complexity of the wine.

in the cellar : The relatively short period of skin fermentation, combined with gentle pump-overs and regular rack and returns at temperatures not exceeding 25˚C, ensure that sufficient flavour and colour compounds are extracted, resulting in soft and smooth tannins.
