Nederburg Ingenuity new releases

As the name might suggest, the Ingenuity tier of wines from Nederburg has always been less about terroir and more a vehicle for the winemaking team to display both their technical nous and creative flair and a so-called Spanish Blend now joins the established White and Italian Blend.

Nederburg Ingenuity Red 2010

You get what you pay for and though the Ingenuity Red 2010 from Nederburg is not cheap at R245 a bottle, it’s smart.

Nederburg Ingenuity Red 2008

Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer 2009

Conundrum out of Rutherford, California is a multi-varietal white blend, the components of which the producer attempts to keep secret but are said to include Chardonnay, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier.
