Red Wine - South Africa

Cederberg Five Generations Cabernet Sauvignon

£55.32
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.

The Nieuwoudt Five Generations range showcases the best of the Cederberg, and the ultimate red wine in this range is the Cabernet, with less than 5200 bottles produced every year. The 18 days longer hang-time in the vineyard followed by 18 months of maturation in new French oak has intensified the rich aromas and flavour profile of this wine.

Tasting Note:
Rich aromas of blackcurrant and cassis, layered with decadent dark chocolate and cherry tobacco. A velvety texture that lingers on the palate with a distinct blackcurrant finish.
