A bit late posting this but just had to share quickly before I forgot! I’ve long been a fan of Nederburg’s wines having been introduced to them by a friend who moved here from South Africa. It’s a massive company producing mainstream wines. Generally average price and well worth every cent. This particular wine really just popped into my line of sight recently. I had tasted the Shiraz’s, the Cab’s and the Winemaster’s line but this one seemed frankly too cheap to be true.
This 2015 56 Hundred line is a blend of Shiraz and Cab Merlot, which is pretty routine for Nederburg and it would appear it is for the value conscious and really just a quick and easy wine to serve in a group on a patio. Nothing big about it really but a solid taste for a backyard gathering. It was leathery and earthy and dark cherry-ish – nothing unexpected here, but the price.
So if you are looking for an 11 buck wine that packs a decent punch this is the one I’d grab in heartbeat. Click here for Nederburg’s flashy site!
