Take a trip down memory lane with Nederburg this Heritage Day
The Red Table restaurant, 24 September 2016
The Red Table restaurant in the manor house of historic estate, Nederburg, on the outskirts of Paarl is another choice destination this Heritage Day.
Treat yourself to a refreshing glass of Nederburg Cuvée Brut on arrival, while snacking on farm-fresh flat bread and artisanal cheeses, olives, basil pesto, cream cheese and sundried tomatoes. The main meal guarantees to delight with chimichuri beef rump, venison sausage, wild Atlantic prawns prepared with garlic and lemon butter, spicy chicken wings, summer vegetables and triple-baked potatoes. The finale will be a selection of rich and delectable mini desserts.
Select a wine from Nederburg’s award-winning Heritage Heroes collection to complement your meal. This exclusive range was created by Razvan Macici, cellar-master of Nederburg from 2001 until 2015, to honour some of the visionaries who have shaped Nederburg and its history as one of South Africa’s most awarded wineries.
There’s The Anchorman, a wooded Chenin blanc that commemorates Nederburg’s founder, Philippus Wolvaart, who bought the farm in 1791 and planted Chenin Blanc, amongst other varietals. The Brew Master, a Bordeaux-style red blend, honours Johann Graue, a pioneering winemaker who was amongst the earliest to recognise that vineyard quality dictates wine quality. The Beautiful Lady, an aromatic Gewürztraminer, recalls Johann Graue’s wife Ilse, who brought grace, hospitality and a beautiful rose garden to Nederburg.
The Motorcycle Marvel Rhône-style blend pays tribute to the winemaker Günter Brözel, who was cellar-master at Nederburg from 1956 to 1989. (The final wine in the collection, The Young Airhawk, a wooded Sauvignon Blanc, is sadly sold out and will not be available on Heritage Day.)
