World Cup wine win­ner

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOOD QUAFFING -

THE FIRST red of 2010 is one of a trio of lim­ited edi­tion wines made to mark the 2010 World Cup.

Few will be sur­prised to find that Neder­burg has been given this hon­our – as one of our most suc­cess­ful pro­duc­ers, the name is glob­ally known, and only big play­ers can af­ford to ne­go­ti­ate with Fifa for li­cences of this kind.

There’s a rosé and a sau­vi­gnon blanc too, which I haven’t sam­pled, priced around R55. The 2010 caber­net, vin­tage 2007, sells for R70. This has been care­fully crafted to please a wide range of palates – fruity and ap­proach­able but re­tain­ing clas­sic char­ac­ter­is­tics, it is a cer­tain win­ner.
