Nederburg The Winemaster’s Reserve Grenache 2013
By Christian Eedes, 23 June 2014
Want further proof that Grenache is shaping is the next big thing when it comes to reds? Consider that The Winemaster’s Reserve Grenache made by Nederburg for Woolworths has gone from R59 a bottle for the 2010 vintage to R74.95 for the currently available 2013. That’s an increase of 27%, somewhat ahead of the 6.6% inflation rate.
The 2013 is pretty with notes of red fruit and fynbos on the nose, the palate medium bodied with fresh acidity and soft tannins. Not exactly complex but true to purpose as a “café red” – serve lightly chilled with a plate of charcuterie.
