Red Wine - South Africa

Cederberg Cabernet Sauvignon, Private Cellar

£24.53
Vegetarian.

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.

High altitude Cabernet vineyards that have a longer ripening period give rise to this phenomenal wine. Loads of blackcurrants with cedar wood undertones on the nose with a hint of smokiness and tobacco leaf, creating a complex wine. Good integration of oak with a velvety finish on the palate.

Tasting Note:
Wonderful blackcurrant fruit flavours, combined with vanilla and oak, certainly gives a decent Claret a run for its money!
