The redoubtable David Nieuwoudt took over the Cederberg estate from his father in 1997.

We first visited David in 2003, when he was in the midst of his planting programme, and have worked with him ever since then.

The Cederberg vineyards here are 1100-1150 metres up in the Cederberg mountains, most of them on dramatic shale slopes. Good natural rainfall,...

Cederberg, Bukettraube, Cederberg, 2021

"Cederberg produce a well-made, exotically-fruited version with around 25g/l [grams per litre] residual sugar", Jancis Robinson [and others], Wine Grapes, 2012. We couldn't have put it better. Bukettraube, a 19th century German cross between Silvaner and the obscure Schiva Grossa, is barely grown outside South Africa, but handled well it makes a delicious medium dry wine, perfect well-chilled as a summer aperitif, with liver pate or Thai-style seafood. Intriguing aromas, showing a Muscat-like grapiness with a slightly smoky note. Sweet orange attack, but with a crisp, irony spine. Now-2023

Made by David Nieuwoudt, who took over the amazing Cederberg estatefrom his father in 1997. The vineyards here are the highest in the Cape,at 1100-1150 metres up in the Cederberg mountains. Good natural rainfall, around 550-600mm, cool temperatures (occasionally snow-showers in winter), with plenty of wind, mean that Cederberg enjoys a near perfect climate, in particular a long ripening period. The whites are mountain-fresh, with plentiful natural acidity.

Not content with the efforts he has made at Cederberg - for example the new plantings into the hard shale slopes - he has also bought land in windswept Elim in the far south of the country on slate and granitic soils. He has branded his wines from there Ghost Corner, the name sailors used to give to nearby Cape Agulhas, the most southerly point of Africa.

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.

Some wine companies lean towards hype and publicity. Stone Vine & Sun lean towards grape and efficiency. Their depth of knowledge and experience and their spread of source manifests itself in…
