Twelve selected barrels were used to produce 1000 cases. Delicate aromas of honey, lime zest, roasted nuts and peaches laced with sweet vanilla undertones. Well-integrated wood and ageing on the lees developed a full, rich palate with a smooth lingering finish. A complex Chenin blanc expressing a sensational bouquet of citrus blossom, roasted almonds and orange peel. A great balance between oak and fruit on palate showing baked apple and marmalade with a rich and creamy finish.
Optimum Drinking Time: 2- 4 years

Food Pairing
A slightly nutty sauce with some of the white meats, BUT Cape “smoor snoek” works well. Try mushroom risotto or “Butter chicken” – both a winning situation. Burnt sage butter pasta ravioli.
Cheese: "Gruyere!"

The Estate
South Africa’s most uniquely situated wine farm falls within the pristine environs of the Cederberg Wilderness Area, which lies in the Cape Floral Kingdom. Here, among spectacular rock formations and fynbos, you will find the highest altitude vineyards in the Cape. Conservation is fundamental and Cederberg Private Cellar is a committed member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative.
