About this Item

2015 Shiraz
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

At more than 3,200 feet above sea level within the magical Cederberg Wilderness Area, Cederberg Private Cellar is South Africa’s highest vineyard. The Nieuwoudt family have been farming in the Cederberg mountain for five generations, with vines planted as early as 1973, but the brand has been energetically driven to become one of SA wine's real success stories by David Nieuwoudt, now at the helm. Thanks to the isolation of the vineyards and the extreme winters, the vineyards are largely virus and disease free. David has single handedly established an enviable terroir identity for the Cederberg, while simultaneously building other successful, pioneering wine ventures, notably Ghost Corner in the region of Elim.

Critics Ratings

The 2015 vintage was a Decanter Gold medalist (2017), Platter 5-star winner, as well as one of the top 12 Shiraz's in the country in the Shiraz SA Challenge (2017).

'As lithe and streamlined as 2014, but richer flavours in this 'perfect' vintage. Intense glossy berries, enough freshness and succulence to give drinking pleasure, tannins supple, supply framing for the future.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2018, 5*
