Nederburg Shiraz Private Bin 2005

Member Review by Arwan:

For those who search for a fruit bomb in a dry red wine I dare say: here's what you are looking for! Exceptional quality for the price, the Private Bin of Nederburg Shiraz 2005 offers great hedonist satisfaction to a Shiraz lover. A lovely light ruby with purple edges meets the eye - the nose is very fruity (wild cherries, strawberries, dark chocolate, smoked figs and... a hint of shoe polish:), the taste is great indeed, lively and fruity: medium bodied, well integrated sugars, ripe tannins, beautifully balanced. The high alcohol ratio (over 14%) enhances the illusion of sweetness in this wine that is a perfect match for pizza, pasta, veal and dark chocolate. Long finish, delightful fruity aftertaste. I really like this wine!

Nederburg is South Africa's favourite name in wine, loved for a delicious combination of fruit and finesse. Established in 1791. near Paarl, we are South Africa's most awarded winery and the popular choice of critics and regular winelovers. Nederburg’s history, dating back to 1791, is remarkable for the pioneering and visionary ideals of those associated with the winery. And today, Nederburg is South Africa’s most widely awarded name in wine. Phillipus Wolvaart established the 49 hectares farm of Paarl Valley, and in just six years, the land was completely fruitful. Through revolutionary techniques such as cold fermentation, Johann Graue, who took ownership in 1937, established Nederburg as the leading producer of quality South African wines. Our viticulturists and cellar team travel widely to keep abreast of international best practice and we embark on extensive vine and winemaking research. Yet despite the many advances in wine-growing and winemaking technology available to us, we still follow a philosophy embedded by pioneering viticulturist and winemaker Johann Georg Graue. When he acquired the farm in 1937, he taught those working with him the critical importance of using superior fruit to make superior wine. It's a credo that has never changed. It informs every aspect of our wine-growing and winemaking and has been followed by all his successors. Read less
