In 2011, Nederburg was chosen as Platter’s Winery of the Year, with an unprecedented five wines across the
multi-tiered range earning five-star ratings. In addition, cellarmaster Razvan Macici was crowned the
2012 Diners Club Winemaker of the Year and the winery itself announced the South African Producer
of the Year at the 2012 International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC). These are just some of the
many accolades earned by Nederburg where hand-crafted, micro-cuvées for specialist winelovers and
beautifully balanced and accessible wines for everyday enjoyment are made with equal commitment.
II Centuries Collection
A celebration of two centuries of skill, tradition and heritage, II Centuries forms the apex of the
multi-tiered range of wines produced by Nederburg. All single-varietal wines, the “best of best”
collection of hand-made wines are produced from grapes sourced from the best vines within
top-performing vineyards jointly identified by our highly-skilled winemaking and viticultural teams.
This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
The grapes were sourced from unirrigated vineyards in the Simonsberg ward of the Paarl area. The
vines, around 31 years old, are situated at altitudes of 300 m to 400 m above sea level. Individual vines
within identified vineyards were chosen to provide fruit that stand out for their and for their
exceptional concentration and depth of aromas and flavours as well as their fine balance of fruit, acid
The grapes were harvested by hand at 24° Balling during February and March. They were crushed
and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 24° to 28° C for a period of 10
days. Post-fermentation skin contact lasting a month followed. The wine was matured in new Radoux
barrels for 30 months.
Inky, opaque purple black core. Showing the perfect ripeness of the 2010 vintage. Seems more fruit driven and modern than preceding vintages, but also powerful and concentrated. Crème de cassis, cocoa and blackberries. Muscular, but accessible now, and will improve with further cellaring until 2025.
