NEDERBURG 5600 CHENIN BLANC
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.
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.
Aromas of zesty citrus and butterscotch on the nose with hints of orange blossom and dried apricot. An elegant, well-balanced wine that fills the mouth with sweet fruit, orange zest, leading to a fresh finish.

The Cape Mist is a natural phenomenon in Cape Town, stealthily moving in as a cool Atlantic breeze over Table Bay. The mist provides a soft blanket over the surrounding slopes and creates the perfect cool climate conditions associated with the Durbanville terroir. These conditions are crucial in creating the perfect environment to grow Sauvignon Blanc, renowned for its abundant and lingering tropical fruit flavours and balanced freshness.
