Cederberg Five Generation Cab

South Africa’s most uniquely situated wine farm falls within the pristine environs of the Cederberg Wilderness Area, which lies in the Cape Floral Kingdom. Here, among spectacular rock formations you will find the highest altitude vineyards in the Cape. The cold climate and remote location, with its pure mountain air and water, ensures that the vines are virus free. This results in award-winning wines which show an exceptional purity of fruit.

The farm has been in the Nieuwoudt family for five generations and David Nieuwoudt currently makes the wines.

Five Generation Cabernet Sauvignon Is a Cape classic and leads the pack in the Cederberg range.
The production is Limited to 3400 bottles, handcrafted, classically styled 2008, made to mature (peak around 2014 – 2016 though already delicious. 
18 months of maturation in new French oak has intensified the rich aromas of blackcurrant and cassis, layered with decadent dark chocolate, minerality, herbs and cherry tobacco velvety finish leaves one wanting more.

Another wine that always amazes me in the range is the Bukettraube and I will come back to this.

Well done David.
