Nederburg wines win major accolades at IWSC

By Wendy Morley

Gold medal: Nederburg Private Bin Two Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Winemaker Nederburg has scooped multiple medals at the 2021 International Wine & Spirit (IWSC) competition in London, winning three gold and three silver medals across its multi-tiered range, with Cabernet Sauvignon taking centre stage.

All IWSC entries are tasted blind. To earn gold, a wine must achieve a score of at least 95. Nederburg’s trio of gold medals went to the 2017 Private Bin Two Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon (ranked five stars in the 2021 issue of Platter's South African Wine Guide), the 2013 Méthode Cap Classique Brut and the 2019 The Winemasters Noble Late Harvest.

Silver IWSC medals are given scores of 90 to 94. These included the 2018 vintage of The Manor House Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 The Winemasters Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2019 The Winemasters Merlot.

Niël Groenewald, Nederburg’s Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted with our IWSC medals and immensely proud of our winemakers who are deeply dedicated to their craft. Recognition on such a prestigious global competition platform is always a great motivator for the team to keep on innovating and bettering their best efforts. Earning several golds and silvers for our Cabernet Sauvignon wines is particularly significant, confirming our proficiency with this classic cultivar known worldwide as the King of Reds.”

In other news, Nederburg has introduced a new wine. Double Barrel Reserve 2020 is described as a smooth Bordeaux-style red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec, with a special touch of double barrel maturation.
