Nederburg Double Barrel Reserve 2021

Bold plump blueberry and cassis aromas that carry through to the palate.
Bright black cherry vibrance and succulence, toned by oak spice. Approachable but well-defined structure with integrated soft tannins and a lovely length.

An absolute treat with a wide range of South African street food such as bunny chow, Amagwinya (vetkoek) with mince, boerewors or steak rolls, dombolo (dumplings) with beef stew, or salomie (curry-flled roti).

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested at 25º to 28º Balling, From mid-February until the end of March.

in the cellar : On arrival at the cellar, the different grape varieties were individually handled and vinified. In each instance, the fruit was gently crushed and fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 28º to 24º C, for around 14 days. Upon extraction of desired colour and tannins, the various wines were drained from the skins, pressed and racked to a selection of mainly new French oak where these wines matured for 92 months before blending.

The Merlot was aged in French oak barrels for 9 months after which it was racked and blended, and then returned to barrel for a period of 3 months, for added fullness / roundness. All components of the blend were then expertly combined to create a supremely well-balanced wine.
