The grapes for the Nederburg Heritage Beaulady Gewurztraminer were sourced from a single vineyard block on the Groenhof farm in the Stellenbosch region. The trellised vines were planted in 1988 and grow in decomposed granite, Tukulu and Clovelly soils. The fruit was harvested by hand at 22 ̊ to 23 ̊ Balling. The clean juice was fermented with a selected yeast strain at a low temperature and stopped when the wine reached an optimal sugar, acid and alcohol balance with the help of cooling. The wine was then stabilised and prepared for bottling.
NoseTypical Gewürztraminer nuances of rose petals and Turkish delight on the nose with alluring sweet litchi and pineapple notes.
AppearanceStraw yellow with a green tinge.
PalateElegant, nuanced and well-balanced with floral notes flowing onto the palate. Its sweetness is more suggested than overt, enlivened by good acidity. It closes on a lovely, lingering finish.
