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.
With its beauty, refinement and typicity, Marqu?s de Riscal Limousin represents the most outstanding qualities of the Verdejo grape, famed for its fragrance, fresh acidity and ageing potential.
This wine is made from grapes from bush vines 40 to 50 years old, cultivated in the best gravel soils of the highest terraces of the district of La Seca, and vines and ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines from the Segovia zone. The clusters are collected by hand one by one and taken to the winery in 15-kilo crates to avoid oxidation as far as possible. After stabilisation in cooled stainless steel vats, fermentation takes place in 600 litre wooden vats and the wine is left to age on the lees for up to 8 months.
The result of this process is a white wine with a particularly beautiful style which displays the potential and versatility of Verdejo, as well as the amazing potential of Rueda as one of the regions for the classic Spanish white wine.
A melody of classic white wine varieties which come together perfectly in every glass.
Aromas of passion fruit and citrus with hints of freshly-cut grass.
Medium-dry, crisp and generous with minerality and a fresh acidity.
At the start of the 1970s, Vinos de los Herederos del Marqu?s de Riscal decided to add a white wine to its product range. After two years? trials, the Rueda region was the one chosen to make it.
Faithful to its pioneering spirit, Marqu?s de Riscal created a new, young, fresh and fruity white wine in a region more famous for its sherry-style amontillados and olorosos. Other bodegas followed us, and the appellation of the D.O Rueda was set up in 1980. In order to achieve the best white wine in the region, it is important to highlight that Marqu?s de Riscal was advised by winemakers from Petaluma (Australia).
The D.O. Rueda is one of the few European winemaking districts specialized in making white wines and in the protection and development of its indigenous variety, Verdejo.
