Nederburg Double Barrel Reserve
Add a special touch this Father’s Day and gift your special guy Nederburg’s new Double Barrel Reserve. This Bordeaux-style wine beautifully blends the winery’s hallmark Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
The dad who enjoys big reds will love this thoughtful gift of a truly unique and special wine.
Each of the five varieties were individually vinified and aged in contact with French oak for 12 months. The Merlot portion is taken from the barrel after nine months, then blended and returned to the barrel for a further three months of maturation. All components were then combined to achieve a beautifully balanced whole. This double-barrel process is a small detail, but it delivers a significant impact. It has turned a terrifically juicy, succulent and appetising wine into one with the finest-grained silky texture and a thrilling richness and depth. The dad who enjoys big reds will love this thoughtful gift of a truly unique and special wine.
