Cederberg

South Africa

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,...

She writes daily for JancisRobinson.com and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion...

Cape Atlantic Sauvignon Blanc, Western Cape, 2020

"Green grassy nose (as opposed to fruity) - not at all like New Zealand SB. Clean, fresh and vegetal rather than fruity." GV Drink 16/20 2020-2022, Jancis Robinson, May 2021

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

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.
