Smooth, suave and self-assured, Baronne is one of South Africa’s most iconic, long-standing and top-selling red blends. The brainchild of legendary Nederburg cellar-master Günter Brözel, this classic wine was launched in 1973. So popular and ubiquitous is Baronne, that for some the name has come to signify red wine itself. After more than 40 years, this noble blend has never changed.

This Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend also includes Shiraz.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards across the Western Cape. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine. The different microclimates and soil types associated with each vineyard add to the complexity of the wine.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 24º Balling during February and March.

in the cellar : The fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins, with selected yeast strains, in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 25ºC to 28ºC. Upon extraction of desired colour and tannins, the wine was drained from the skins, and racked from the lees onto a selection of oak where the wine matured for six months before blending.
