Cederberg, V Generations Chenin Blanc, 2016

In Stock Now!

Just nine barrels this vintage of the estate’s top Chenin – always one of the best in the Cape, attested by this vintage being a Platter five star winner and a Standard Bank Top 10 Chenin. Concentrated, quite oaky (1/3 new barrels), but delivering broad flavours of stone fruit (in part from a dollop of Viognier), nuts; and plenty of weight. Now-2022

This is 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.
