The Chardonnay grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards in Darling and Stellenbosch. These are known as cool climate winegrowing areas, offering the benefit of slower ripening of the grapes to achieve greater flavour intensity. The vines are grown in granite and sandstone soils, resulting in grapes with higher natural acidity, adding to the vibrancy, freshness and longevity of the wine. The vines, ranging in age from 12 to 17 years, and situated on mostly south to south-westerly facing slopes, received supplementary drip irrigation. Grafted onto phylloxera-resistant rootstocks, Richter 99 and 101, the vines yielded an average of 8 to 10 tons per hectare. The Albariño grapes came from Stellenbosch, the Chenin blanc from Swartland, and the Gewürztraminer from Paarl.

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.
