Nederburg Rhine Riesling 2007 vs Nederburg Riesling 2011

Will local Riesling ever amount to much? The observation was once made that all the spots most suited to the variety have been planted to Sauvignon Blanc so a world-class version is unlikely. It was SA’s 30th most planted variety at the end of 2014 with 164ha in the ground having declined from 290ha in […]

Nederburg Paarl Cabernet Sauvignon 1975

The serious buyers look business-minded while everybody else is obviously goofing off work as this year’s Nederburg Auction kicks off in Paarl. From 09h00 to 11h00, an informal tasting up for sale and on a whim, I chose to focus on sweet wines. How much will the Nederburg Edelkeur 1982 go for? Dark brown with […]

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.

The Old Vine Series Skerpioen 2013 vs Nederburg Heritage Heroes The Anchorman 2012

Oh, but it’s not a competition the effete contend. All of life is, I would counter. Eben Sadie of Sadie Family Wines has now achieved global recognition as a winemaker while Razan Macici of Nederburg, while not exactly unknown, is hardly a wine-geek hero. Revolution from without or within is what’s at stake here. Do […]
