This range of refreshing, fruity and smooth-drinking wines takes its name from the fifty-six hundred guilders that Philippus Wolvaart used in 1791 to start the farm he was to call Nederburg. A visionary who recognised the winegrowing potential of the land, he had the tenacity to tame the property and establish a farm that continues to flourish today.
COLOUR Light green.
BOUQUET Intense aromas of sweet-melon, gooseberry and kiwi with lovely citrus undertones.
PALATE A well-balanced wine with delicate layers of stone fruit and citrus undertones. The wine has a fresh finish with lime notes towards the end.
KES2,490The Manor House ultra-premium collection comprises single varietal wines made from some of Nederburg’s best-of-best fruit, inspired by the beautifully proportioned Cape Dutch manor house built in 1800 by Nederburg’s founder, Philippus Wolvaart.
This wine is made from Sauvignon blanc grapes.
The grapes were sourced from a single vineyard block in the Darling area. The block was harvested at two intervals based on phenolic ripeness. The vines, planted between 1996 and 2004, are grown in Tukulu and Oakleaf soils at altitudes ranging between 80m and 120m above sea level. The majority of the grapes grow under dryland conditions, on a vertical trellising system.
The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Durbanville and Paarl areas. The vines, situated some 120m to 160m above sea level and planted between 1984 and 1993, are grown in Tukulu and Oakleaf soils. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99, the vines received supplementary irrigation.
COLOUR Vividly yellow with hints of gold.
BOUQUET Abundant aromas of orange blossom, mango, honey, peach and apricot, ending with jasmine florality.
PALATE Rich honeyed apricot and peach with a slight nuttiness, bright acid lift and a light marmalade tang to counteract the sweetness.
