Nederburg's Eminence on world's top ten

The only South African entry to make it into the esteemed Muscat du Monde Top Ten wines for 2015 was Eminence, the 2008 vintage of Nederburg's luscious, layered and beautifully finessed sweet wine.
Nederburg's Eminence on world's top tenFeatured on this year's Nederburg Auction on September 11 and 12, the wine makes its second appearance on the Muscat du Monde Top Ten list. The last time it was on this list was in 2011. It also earned 96 points and took the trophy for the 'best unfortified dessert wine' at the 2011 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show.

The wine is made entirely from Muscat d'Frontignan grapes grown in Paarl and harvested in May, between 35° and 40° Balling. On the nose and palate, it expresses appealing Muscat notes of dried apricots, flowers, raisins and fruit cake, offset by a vibrant acidity.
