Dried Fruit

A dark, intense red with an abundance of sweet spice, berry and dried fruit characters on the nose. The palate is rich and intense, full bodied explosion of red fruit flavours with ripe and silky tannins, and excellent integration of fruit and wood with a hint of spice.

About This Wine

  • WINEMAKER

    This limited-edition gourmet range celebrates the story of Nederburg’s Heritage Heroes. The Heritage Heroes collection of individually named, hand-made gourmet wines, honours some of the legends. Their story began in 1791, when Philippus Wolvaart - The Anchorman, tamed the wilderness and established the Nederburg farm. Following in his footsteps, Johann Graue - The Brewmaster, then acquired the land in 1937. In preparation to succeed him, he trained his beloved son, The Young Airhawk. It was a sad day when his son passed in a light airplane crash. With her grace and elegance, his mother, The Beautiful Lady, revived the spirit of the winery. Unaware that he was to be the last piece of the Heritage Heroes puzzle; Günter Brötzel - The Motorcycle Marvel, then put foot on African soil. Soon he was promoted to Cellar Master and the sound of his BSA 1954 motorbike emanated from the vineyards for years to come.
  • PRODUCTION

    Each grape variety was separately vinified. The grapes were hand sorted at the cellar and then fermented on the skins in stainless steel fermenters. Upon extraction of sufficient tannin and colour, the wine was drained from the skins. The wine was then racked to 300-litre first, second and third fill French, American and Romanian barrels where it was left to mature for 20 months. After careful barrel selection, the different components of the wine were racked from barrel and blended.
