After recently winning the 2016 International Wine & Spirit Competition trophy for best Cabernet Sauvignon in the world, for the 2013 vintage of its Private Bin Cabernet Sauvignon, the Paarl winery emerged as one of the top performers at the 2016 Veritas Awards, held in Cape Town earlier this month.
Nederburg’s undisputed ability to delight and ignite curiosity with its dessert wines was clearly evident, with a Veritas double gold medal awarded to the 2012 vintage of Nederburg’s flagship natural sweet wine, Eminence. The same limited-edition wine, reserved for exclusive sale at the annual Nederburg Auction, was the only South African wine featured as one of the top ten wines in the 2016 Muscats du Monde in France earlier this year, also earning a gold medal. It also won trophies at the 2016 International Wine Challenge (IWC) in the United Kingdom, and the 2016 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show in South Africa.
Although three wines made exclusively for the Nederburg Auction were included in the Veritas gold medal line-up, including Nederburg Eminence 2013 as well as Edelkeur 2012 and 2013, three other wines from Nederburg’s multi-tiered range were also awarded gold.
