About this Item

2007 Edelkeur
1 (1 x 1) 375ml

Nederburg is considered by many to be South Africa’s most decorated name in wine and their achievements and accolades can match up to any other estate in the nation. Established in 1791 by Philippus Wolvaart and his wife, Margaretha, they laid the foundations for future success on a farm situated between the Berg and Palmiet rivers. Amongst their many accolades, highlights include Platter’s guide awarding them winery of the year in 2011 and 2017 and placing 36th in the ‘most admired wine brand in the world’ by the esteemed Drinks International in 2017.

The Edelkeur was pioneered and created in 1969 by Günter Brözel, and kick-started the Nederburg Auction in 1975. Made from 100% Noble (Botrytised) Chenin Blanc grapes, the Edelkeur has perfect sugar/acid balance and long life.

Perhaps the most celebrated Nederburg wines are the sweet wines of Edelkeur and Eminence but the German-styled Noble Late Harvest Riesling is even more rare. The ‘penetrating fruit acids’ have integrated into a beautifully mature and savoury/sweet wine. A South Africa Classic that has aged with grace. The Edelkeur made from Chenin Blanc was only available previously at the Nederburg Auction.

Critics Ratings

‘Opening with subtle aromas of volatility on the nose that quickly make way for notes of white tea, honey and sun-dried raisins, the 2007 Edelkeur Late Harvest Chenin Blanc sways back and forth in the glass with elegance and soft, synthetic tones. The palate is rich, sweet and delivers pleasure and weight, before ending with an expedited finish.’ - Anthony Mueller, Wine Advocate
