SA wines have been riding quite a crest in recent months and none more so than Nederburg.
Last week, Nederburg’s The Anchorman was selected as one of the winning wines of the 2017 Standard Bank Chenin Blanc Top 10 Challenge.
Earlier this year, the same wine won a platinum award for the best SA chenin blanc at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards in London.
The Paarl winery was recently placed 36th in Drinks International’s World’s Most Admired Wine Brands top 50 survey. It was also selected as the SA Wine Producer of the Year at the 2016 International Wine & Spirits Competition.
The Anchorman is a wooded chenin blanc that commemorates Nederburg founder Philippus Wolvaart, who bought the farm in 1791 and planted chenin blanc, among other varietals.
