Neethling Wines was established in 2008. Owner and winemaker Rikus Neethling
has completed B.Sc Viticulture and Oenology at the University of Stellenbosch
After his completion of his studies he worked at a cooperative which gave him
the perfect stepping stone to start his own wine venture. Rikus is a passionate
winemaker that shares his love for wine, his beautiful country and the people
close to him in every bottle of wine. Hand-crafted to perfection from only the
best grapes the Western Cape has to offer.
You can taste our love for wine, family and friends in every single bottled.
Rikus Neethling Wines (RNW) is sourced from Stellenbosch’s
best grapes in order to produce hand-crafted wines that are a true reflection
of their terroirs. A delicious blend of Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Full bodied with concentrated blackberry fruits, velvety
tannins and earthy minerality with a good length.
This wine shows aromatic quality that is best described as a
“New World” style. Pale straw in colour, the aroma and flavours show
grapefruit, lime and passion fruit backed with subtle herbaceous tones. The
palate continues to open throughout bringing in flavours of lime rind and lemon
grass then transitions to the long, clean, bone dry finish.
