The Heritage Heroes collection of individually named, hand-made gourmet wines, honours some of the legends who have shaped Nederburg and its history as one of South Africa’s most awarded wineries. Every one of these wines has been made with a focus on innovation, whether in terms of technique or choice of varietal, to offer wine lovers a greater and more nuanced spectrum of flavour. The Motorcycle Marvel, a Rhône-style red blend, honours the legendary winemaker Günter Brӧzel, who was cellar-master at Nederburg from 1956 to 1989. He played a leading role in building Nederburg’s reputation as the most awarded winery in South Africa. A maven and a maverick, he is known for his exceptionally high standards. Getting around on a 250cc BSA motorcycle, he checked on everyone and everything to ensure his exacting demands were met. In 1985, he became the first in South Africa to earn the International Wine & Spirit Competition Winemaker of the Year Award. He was a great pioneer and created the first South African noble late harvest wine, Edelkeur, which was launched at the first Nederburg Auction in 1975 and to this day is sold exclusively through this channel. He is an icon in South African winemaking.
Country: South Africa
Tasting note: Dark, intense red. An abundance of sweet spice, berries, dates and a hint of tobacco leaf and pepper. A rich and intense, full-bodied wine with ripe and silky tannins. Excellent integration of fruit and wood with a hint of spice.
