Nederburg wine has won the top prize at the 2017 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London.
Nederburg scooped eight gold medals and the competitions highest medal – the gold outstanding.
The IWSC described the local wine as “a Cape classic Chenin Blanc at its best with rich marmalade, roasted nuts and soft dried apricots. The palate is viscose, but so elegant, rounded and just seamless as the acidity is perfectly judged for an unflagging fresh spice finish. Terrific ageing potential.”
The 2013 vintage of Nederburg’s Private Bin Edelkeur received the Gold outstanding medal
2007, 2012 and 2013 vintages of Private Bin Eminence and Nederburg’s flagship Natural Sweet Wine received Gold medals.
