The Nieuwoudt Five Generation range showcases the best of the Cederberg. Grapes were hand harvested 14 March - 27 March 2019 at 24.5 - 25° Balling and cold soaked for two days before being inoculated with yeast. During fermentation colour/flavour extraction takes place with regular pump-overs every six hours along with two to three manual punch-downs of the grape cap. A maximum temperature of 27°C is reached. On completion of fermentation a further 14-18 days of extended skin maceration takes place before pressing and barrelling in 225-litre French oak. Malolactic fermentation is completed in barrel and maturation is over 18 months. A premium selection of only 21 barrels. 100% 1st-fill barrel only of tight and medium grain with medium and medium-plus toasting. Only 5,600 bottles were produced. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Powerful aromas of dark red fruit, cassis and plums. Lovely whiffs of cedar wood, tobacco and sweet spices.

Palate: You're welcomed with sweet tones of cassis, blackberry and plums. Lovely rich character with subtle tones of baking spices. Mid-palate reveals its more savoury character with earthy tobacco tones becoming more apparent.

Finish: Elegant ripe tannin structure with a velvety finish. Lingering notes of cedar wood, sweet spices and plums.
