The local wine won eight
golds and the competition's highest medal.
Nederburg wine has scooped the top prize at the 2017
International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in
The gold outstanding, the
competition's highest medal honour, went to the 2013
vintage of Nederburg's Private Bin Edelkeur.
The renowned noble late harvest, made from botrytised
Chenin Blanc, has earned Nederburg considerable
international kudos over the years.
The IWSC judging panel describes the wine as "a Cape
classic Chenin Blanc at its best with rich marmalade,
roasted nuts and soft dried apricots. The palate is
viscose, but so elegant, rounded and just seamless as
the acidity is perfectly judged for an unflagging fresh
spice finish. Terrific ageing potential."
The 2012 vintage of the same wine earned a gold medal.
Golds were also awarded to the 2007, 2012 and 2013
vintages of Private Bin Eminence and Nederburg's
flagship Natural Sweet Wine. ¡V Source:
