Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc 2004

For 14 years our south-facing Sauvignon Blanc vineyards were keeping their secret, but the 2004 harvest, with a acid of 7,4 and 1,9 grams of sugar per liter, is definitely hinting at what Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc is all about: a unique South African wine with very definite nose and palate characteristics. An elegant and exciting crisp wine with highly concentrated gooseberry and fig leaf aromas, as well as some dusty/peppery whiffs.

The crisp taste adds freshness to any seafood dish, especially oysters and salmon.
