Winemaker David Nieuwoudt

The Nieuwoudt Five Generations range - the vineyard's flagship range - showcases the best of Cederberg. For the Chenin Blanc, only fifteen selected barrels are used to produce 8000 bottles.

Grapes are hand harvested early morning at 23.5 balling. A portion of the grapes are whole bunch pressed and the other portion goes through the destemmer and crushed for skin contact. One day of settling and then barrelled in 400L French oak barrels. Natural fermentation takes place over the next 40 – 60 days with strict temperature control during fermentation. Once fermentation is completed, the wine is matured for up to 10 months with monthly battônage of the lees. No malolactic fermentation takes place. 33% 1st fill, 33% 2nd fill and 33% 3rd fill barrels of tight grain with medium toast.

Tasting Notes:

A complex Chenin Blanc expressing pure fruit aromas, baked apples and delicate spice complimented with roasted almonds and citrus notes. A great balance between fruit and oak with a creamy lively finish.

Best Enjoyed:

A slightly nutty sauce with some white meat or seafood. Try mushroom risotto or “Butter chicken” – both a winning situation. Burnt sage butter pasta ravioli.

Cheese: "Gruyere!"

Optimum Drinking Time: 2- 4 years
