Tasting Notes:

"Seductive, toasty scents of brioche and pie crust are upfront on the nose, supported by notes of baked apple, orange oil and melon. The round, plush mouthfeel is soft and richly fruited, with just enough acidity to keep it from feeling too heavy. The palate transitions nicely from flavors of apple pie and creamed pear to woody spice. Drink now." -Wine Enthusiast

"Reminiscent of ripe fruits, especially apricots and nectarines, with floral hints and traces of raisin and spice. Well-balanced, fresh and fruity with a beautiful minerality and an excellent structure." - Winery

Winery Notes:

This limited-edition gourmet range celebrates the story of Nederburg’s Heritage Heroes. Their story began in 1791, when Philippus Wolvaart - The Anchorman, tamed the wilderness and established the Nederburg farm. Following in his footsteps, Johann Graue - The Brewmaster, then acquired the land in 1937. In preparation to succeed him, he trained his beloved son, The Young Airhawk. It was a sad day when his son passed in a light airplane crash. With her grace and elegance, his mother, The Beautiful Lady, revived the spirit of the winery. Unaware that he was to be the last piece of the Heritage Heroes puzzle; Günter Brötzel - The Motorcycle Marvel, then put foot on African soil. Soon he was promoted to Cellar Master and the sound of his BSA 1954 motorbike emanated from the vineyards for years to come.
