1791 was the year that Philippus Wolvaart arrived in The Cape, laying the foundation for what is now South Africa's most prized name in wine.

Situated in the heart of the beautiful and fertile Paarl winelands, 60 km north-east of Cape Town, against the backdrop of the Drakenstein Mountains, the Nederburg homestead is a classic example of a history and heritage as deep as the roots of their vines, they have nurtured the land and built a strong foundation on which the success of Nederburg was to flourish.

The Beautiful Lady Gewürztraminer - A single-vineyard Gewürztraminer sourced from a single-vineyard block in the Stellenbosch region. The south-westerly facing vineyard block was planted in 1988 and is situated 210m above sea level on the Simonsberg. The wine takes its name from a description of Ilse Graue, the wife of Johann Graue, by former winemaker Günter Brözel reflecting the ‘gracious sense of hospitality’ she brought to Nederburg. The grapes from this vineyard block were employed by Günter to great effect in the 1980s. Hand-harvested fruit was gently pressed and skin contact allowed for 12 hours to concentrate the aromatic flavours. With 22 g/l of residual sugar, the wine is rich, yet the sweetness is well tempered by the acidity; shows pronounced aromas of rose, lychee and pineapple.

Retails at other merchants for £18-22 (hence £20 RRP) and it’s much more at restaurants eg £50 at the Lowry.

Just £14.99 here at Bin Ends, a great example of an extraordinary price for an out of the ordinary wine!
