About this Item

Five Generations Cabernet Sauvignon, 2001
4 (1 x 4) 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

‘This special, isolated site, located at over 1,000 metres, makes exceptional Cabernet, but especially so in 2015. Picked on April 10th, it’s a dense, concentrated, yet beautifully poised wine that handles its 100% new oak with ease. Modern, glossy and chocolatey, but with fine tannins and real persistence. 2020-28.’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2017, 95/100.
