The Nieuwoudt Five Generations range showcases the best of the Cederberg. Grapes are hand-harvested early morning at 23.5° Balling. A portion of the grapes is whole bunch pressed and the other portion goes through the destemmer and crushed for skin contact. After one day of settling and then barrelled in 400-litre French oak barrels. Natural fermentation takes place over the next 40-60 days with strict temperature control during fermentation. Once fermentation is complete the wine is matured for 10 months with monthly battonage of the lees. No malolactic fermentation. 33% 1st-fill, 33% 2nd-fill and 33% 3rd-fill of tight grain with medium toasted barrels are used for maturation. Only 12 selected barrels were used to produce 6,000 bottles. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Delicate aromas of honey, lime zest, roasted nuts and peaches laced with sweet vanilla undertones.

Palate: Well-integrated wood and ageing on the lees developed a full, rich palate.

Finish: A smooth lingering finish.
