Nederburg The Motorcycle Marvel Grenache-Carignan-Shiraz, Western Cape

Winemaker at Nederburg for 33 years, Günter Brózel used his 250cc BSA motorcycle to take him quickly around the estate – he demanded exceptionally high standards! A blend of Grenache, Carignan, Shiraz, Mourvèdre and Cinsault (31%, 31%, 18%, 11% and 9% respectively) all hand-harvested. Fermented in open-topped tanks, the wine was matured in barrels, some French oak and none new, for about two years prior to bottling. Spicy hedgerow fruit on the nose, the palate is rich and intense with silky tannins. The 2014 vintage was awarded 90 Points in Tim Atkin's SA Special Report 2016
