Nedurburg ‘The Anchorage’ Chenin Blanc
Platinum Medal by Decanter for the Best Chenin Blanc in South Africa under €20
Paarl, South Africa
2 x 75cl Bottles
The Anchorman is a wooded Chenin blanc that commemorates Nederburg’s founder, Philippus Wolvaart, who bought the farm in 1791 and planted Chenin blanc, amongst other varietals.
White-wine maker, Natasha Boks, says it offers a “superb combination of freshness and complexity with ripe apricot, orange and floral characters laced with spice and minerality".
“It is a most interesting and expressive wine that is a blend of very differently vinified components. One portion of fruit was fermented in second- and third-fill 300-litre barrels. A second component was fermented in stainless-steel tanks, while a third was fermented in very old, large vats and the remainder involved a fermentation technique usually reserved for red wines. Called carbonic maceration, whole bunches which are neither crushed nor pressed, are allowed to ferment spontaneously. The resultant wine tends to be light and fruity. This technique was chosen for the freshness it would impart to the wine. After fermentation, the various components were kept on the lees for 9 months prior to final blending and bottling.”
The Mimic Shiraz, Jumilla, Spain
Gold Medal International Wine Challenge
Jumilla, Spain 2 x 75cl Bottles
The Mimic Shiraz is unashamedly a wine which takes its style and inspiration from its Aussie counterparts and definitely sticks it to them with its big smooth, fruity style.
Made in the South Eastern Spanish region of Jumilla, the Mimic Shiraz grapes are carefully harvested at the moment of optimum ripeness before undergoing pressing to extract all the juice. The must then spends an extended period of time on its skins and temperature controlled fermentation to extract the maximum fruit freshness from the grapes. After fermentation, 80% of the wine spends 3 months in French oak, before blending with the unoaked wine and bottling.
The result is a great value bottle of red wine full of black plums, damsons, blackberry and licorice flavours with a touch of vanilla spice on the finish.
A wine which is delicious on its own or ideal with bbq flavours and grilled meats.
