For the second time, Nederburg has been announced as Platters’s 2017 Winery of the Year, described as the “ultimate accolade” by the Platter’s Wine Guide. Nederburg first won this accolade in 2011. Four of its wine across its range earned five-star ratings, which is more than any other producer. The four wines which were awarded five stars are The Winemasters Noble Late Harvest 2015, The Brew Master 2014, a Bordeaux-style blend, the 2013 vintage of Nederburg Private Bin R163 Cabernet Sauvignon, and Nederburg’s Private Bin D234 Sauvignon Blanc 2015. The two private bin wines are not yet available for sale.
Cellarmaster Andrea Freeborough, who took over the reins from Razvan Macici in 2015, says: “We are thrilled! Earning the title of Platter’s 2017 Winery of the Year is a true acknowledgment of the collective efforts of the winegrowing and winemaking team in producing consistently delicious, well-balanced wines of excellence. The Platter guide is respected locally and internationally, considered the go-to source for many in identifying remarkable South African wines.” www.nederburg.co.za
