Nederburg Lyric 2019

Brilliant with green tinges. Aromas of passion fruit and jasmine with hints of melon and lime. Off-dry, crisp with a lovely follow-through of fruit aromas on the pallet.

Delicious with seafood, light meals and salads.

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. The vines are trellised on a four-wire system and received supplementary irrigation during the growing season.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 20º to 22º Balling from mid-January until the end of February. The fruit was crushed, pressed and then settled. The clean juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks for a period of three weeks at 15ºC after the wines were racked off the lees. The different components were fermented separately and only blended once fermentation was completed.
