Here are a few of their exceptional wines.

 
Nederburg The Beautiful Lady 2019 

The Nederburg Heritage Heroes The Beautiful Lady 2019 is a unique wine as it has notes of rose petals, delicious Turkish delight, litchi and pineapple. For an indulgent treat after lunch or dinner, this wine is best served with biscotti, rose-scented lokum and candied pineapple. It can also be paired with mild curries (Thai or Malaysian-style prepared with coconut milk). Elegantly presented in a beautiful silver tin, the wine requires no wrapping paper and is an ideal gift.

Nederburg Two Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

As a limited-edition wine which has spent 29 months in French oak barrels, the Nederburg Two Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is a wine to be savoured. Richly fruited, the wine expresses signature notes of black fruit, plums, cassis, and cigar box. Best paired with a rosemary-infused lamb, petit poussin with thyme, seared AAA-grade rump, fillet or sirloin, it is a good option after a hearty Sunday roast.
