Description

The Nederburg Heritage Anchorman is named for Nederburg’s founder, Philippus Wolvaart, who bought the farm in 1791 and planted Chenin Blanc, amongst other varietals. The fruit for this wine was sourced from old, low-yielding, dry-land bush vines in Paarl and Darling. One portion of fruit was fermented in first, second- and third-fill 300-litre barrels. A second component was fermented in stainless-steel tanks, while a third was fermented in very old, large vats and the remainder involved a fermentation technique usually reserved for red wines. After fermentation, the various components were kept on the lees for 9 months prior to final blending and bottling.

Sommelier Review

“South Africa is known for its great winemaking of Chenin Blanc. This masterpiece is matured in different stages. From small oak to larger casks it moves in stainless steel to give this wine a great body but still retains the freshness.”
