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, Chenin Blanc, Cederberg, 2021

Always our benchmark wine at this estate - this is the 19th continuous vintage we have shipped. It is a mountain fresh exampe, from a bowl of isolated vineyards in the Cederberg mountains at over 3000ft; ad crafted to preserve freshness and bite.

Mouth watering entry of tangerine, guava and passionfruit. As ever, zippy and exuberantly fruity but also finishes crisp and dry. Now - early 2023

Made by David Nieuwoudt, who took over the amazing Cederberg estate from 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.
