Nederburg 1791 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Ruby red. An abundance of red berry 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.

An ideal partner to robust dishes from pâtés to steaks, as well as full-bodied dishes such as beef stroganoff, winter stews, roasts and mature cheeses.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Western Cape. Various climate zones add to the complexity of the wine. The wine farmers work closely with the Nederburg viticulturist to ensure the optimum quality of grapes delivered to the cellar.

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 four months.
