Cederberg

Cape Atlantic Sauvignon Blanc, Western Cape, 2020

 Although there is no mention on the label, this is about two thirds from the young Sauvignon parcels at Cederberg, plus a third from the Ghost Corner vineyards at Elim – hence the gannet on the label. Owner David Nieuwoudt told me how a previous vintage, tasted blind in a large line-up, had been selected for the FNB Top 10 Sauvignon Blancs in the Cape: embarrassed by the fact that he makes three grander Sauvignons he felt he had to withdraw it from the competition!

Bright aromas of elderflower, lemon and lime jump out of the glass. Citrus flavours with underlying notes of nettles and freshly cut grass. A vibrant and precise Sauvignon from the Cederberg cellar. Now-2022

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
