Nederburg the Winemaster's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Deep ruby. Bouquet: Aromas of blackcurrants and cherries with nuances of vanilla in the background. Palate: A full-bodied wine with ripe fruit, cherry and delicate oak spice flavours, firm tannins and a lingering aftertaste. Food suggestions: Excellent served with robust dishes such as patés and steaks, as well as full- bodied dishes such as beef stroganoff, winter stews, roasts and mature cheeses.

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

Very forward with the alcohol, it took a number of whiffs to finally detect a few essences of black fruits, a faint touch of licorice and some cedar. Dense and full-bodied on the palate, the flavors are earthy and spicy especially through the back of the nose. The finish is somewhat powdery; a woodiness that tastes of sappiness. I'm thinking this hasn't seen any oak at all even as sources say it has seen twelve months "in wood". Not the best example of a Cab Sauv, but passable for the Western Cape, I guess.
