"Cederberg produce a well-made, exotically-fruited version with around 25g/l residual sugar", Jancis Robinson , 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-2021

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.
