Nederburg Manor House Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Ruby red. An abundance of ripe red berry fruit and dark chocolate aromas with nuances of oak in the background.  A medium-bodied wine with ripe fruit and delicate oak spice flavours, firm tannins and a lingering, youthful aftertaste. Excellent drinkability.

Excellent with rosemary-infused lamb, petit poussin with thyme, seared AAA rump, fillet or sirloin, or Châteaubriand

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.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested at 25° Balling.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22º to 23.5º Balling from mid-February until the end of March. The fruit was crushed and then cool-fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 25º to 28ºC for two weeks. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in contact with French and American oak for a period of five months.
