Nederburg's Eminence does it again
Issued by August Collective on behalf of Nederburg Wines - Jul 11th 2016, 16:35
This limited-edition, specialty sweet wine is made for exclusive sale at the annual Nederburg Auction. Earlier this year, the same sweet wine won trophies at the International Wine Challenge (IWC) in the United Kingdom, and the 2016 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show in South Africa.
Grapes for this well-awarded wine were sourced from 27-year-old Muscat de Frontignan vines, located in Simondium. Hand-harvesting took place when the fruit had reached 40º Balling, having been left to hang until they achieved full ripeness.
Cellar master Andrea Freeborough describes the layered and complex dessert wine as very fragrant with typical Muscat and floral notes with aromas of currants, raisins, citrus and spice and a rich, luscious palate, balanced by good acidity.
Previous vintages of Eminence have also excelled internationally, earning gold medals at earlier competitive events, including the International Wine Challenge, International Wine & Spirit Competition, Decanter World Wine Awards and the Six Nations Wine Challenge. The 2008 vintage featured as one of the top ten wines in the Muscats du Monde in 2015, while the 2009 vintage won a trophy at Decanter World Wine Awards and was also a double gold winner at Veritas.
Eminence also features on the Top Wine SA Hall of Fame list and amongst the SAWi (SA Wine Index) Grand Wine Collections for the high number of accolades the wine has received across vintages internationally and at local competitions.
Earlier this year, Nederburg was one of just 50 wineries globally to feature on the prestigious 2016 Drinks International list of the world's most admired brands. The list was compiled by 200 wine experts, including 30 Masters of Wine.
*This year, given the closeness of the scores, 13 wines featured on the honours list.
