The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Paarl wine-growing areas. The vines are grown in granite and shale soils, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity and resulting freshness. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to a well-balanced acidity, in turn contributing to better tannin structure and fruit expression as well as deeper colour intensity

NEDERBURG CABERNET SAUVIGNONKES610 – KES1,780
The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Ceres districts, all cool climate winegrowing areas with 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 a zestier and higher natural acidity, which adds to the freshness and longevity of the wine. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to more balanced acidity, in turn making the wine deliciously palatable.
Colour Crisp with a touch of lime green.
Bouquet Aromas of a highveld thunderstorm and flinty, grassy smell with zingy lemon and granadilla notes.
Palate Dusty flint with lemon zest and marmalade flavours can be found on a balanced, refreshing palate. Vivacious acidity is poised by juicy fruit nuances with some granadilla and tropical notes noticeable.
Baronne is Nederburg’s all-time favourite red blend and also one of South Africa’s most perennially popular and trusted wines.
This smooth-drinking Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend, which includes Shiraz, is the perfect partner to steakhouse fare.
COLOUR Deep ruby.
BOUQUET Alluring aromas of spicy dark blue and black berry fruit.
PALATE Juicy, soft and plush in the mouth with blueberry, cassis, a twist of pepper and cinnamon. Rich and textured.
