The Manor House ultra-premium collection comprises single varietal wines made from some of Nederburg's best-of-best fruit, inspired by the beautifully proportioned Cape Dutch manor house built in 1800 by Nederburg's founder, Philippus Wolvaart. This wine is made from Shiraz grapes.

in the vineyard : The fruit for this wine was sourced from selected topperforming vineyards situated 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. Each block was picked at optimum ripeness and vinified separately

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22º to 23,5º Balling, from mid-February until the end of March.

in the cellar : The fruit was crushed and then cool-fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 25º to 28ºC for two weeks. The wine was aged in new, second- and third-fill French, Eastern European and American oak barrels for 23 months before final assemblage.
