Cederberg Bukettraube, Private Cellar


A legitimately unique and wildly remote terroir in South Africa, Cederberg climbs to over 1000 metres altitude above sea level; Cederberg Private Cellar is the only estate making wine here. Historically others have tried, and failed, to make viticulture work for them in this hostile and arid region, but only the Nieuwoudt family have stayed the course. To produce any wine at all here, let alone make some of South Africa’s most admired wines, is testimony to the passion and commitment of owner/winemaker David Nieuwoudt, the fifth generation Nieuwoudt running the farm.

This is a rare cultivar with less than 100 hectares left in the world and while there are small parcels in Germany and Alsace, Bukketraube seems to have found its calling in South Africa. Case in point: Cederberg’s Bukettraube. This is an ideal match to delicately spiced Asian food, and a fair few cheeses.

Tasting Note:
With floral notes and stone fruit on the nose, it has just a touch of delicate sweetness and a clean, crisp finish.
