Nederburg’s 56Hundred range of refreshing, fruity and smooth-drinking wines takes its name from the price of fifty-six hundred guilders that Philippus Wolvaart paid in 1791 for the farm he was to call Nederburg. He had the vision to recognise the wine-growing potential of this land and the optimism to clear an untamed property and establish a flourishing farm that continues to thrive today, more than two centuries later. 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.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 24º Balling during February and March. 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 9 months before blending.
