“Strings of dainty pearls in liquid gold.” Made in the traditional French method of allowing a second fermentation to take place in the bottle. The extended period on lees, allowed time to add to the creamy complexity of this sparkling wine.
The Cederberg style Chenin Blanc offers beautiful layers of melon, grapefruit and fleshy white pear. Four months lees contact ensured a mouth coating creaminess on the palate with a lively crisp acidity to finish off. Altitude vineyards make this Chenin Blanc truly unique. This wine will be well suited to creamy dishes as well as light summer lunches.
A rare cultivar with 77 hectares left in the world. Cederberg Bukettraube is an explosion of aroma and flavour. It has prominent muscat flavours with apricot and floral notes on the nose. A well balanced wine with a delicate sweetness and a crisp acidity. Enjoyed as an aperitif; partner to spicy fusion foods – not hot; sweet Cape curries, or goose liver and baked fruits.
Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc
An aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with a combination of tropical, citrus and green aromas. Aromas of gooseberries, guava, lemon zest with hints of asparagus and green fig. A refreshing, crisp acidity finishes off the initial sensation of creaminess on the mid-palate. The ideal companion to traditional chicken pie, but also try it with shellfish or pork.
The Cederberg Rosé, made of single vineyard shiraz, shows elegant aromas of strawberries, watermelon and cotton candy. It has a dry entry with a creamy palate yet it has a crisp finish. This shiraz-based Rosé has an exotic coral pink appearance, a real summer refresher.
Cederberg Shiraz Merlot
A fantastic blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Shiraz. The wine shows an abundance of red fruit on the nose. Sweet plums and blackcurrants from the Merlot and a slight hint of spice from the Shiraz.
Cederberg Cabernet Sauvignon
High altitude Cabernet sauvignon vineyards that have a longer ripening period give rise to this phenomenal wine. Ripe dark fruit with cassis and blackcurrants with cedar wood undertones. The elegant oaking expresses hints of smokiness and tobacco leaf creating a complex wine with a velvety finish on the palate.
A multi-dimensional wine filled with intense red fruit, mulberry and cherries on the nose. Well-balanced with elegant oaking expressing hints of sweet vanilla. On the palate intense fruit flavours follows through leaving a silky smooth sensation.
Cederberg Five Generation Cabernet Sauvignon
The 18 months of maturation in new French oak has intensified the rich aromas of blackcurrant and cassis, layered with decadent dark chocolate and cherry tobacco. A velvety texture that lingers on the palate with a distinct blackcurrant aftertaste.
