Cederberg Bukettraube 2011

Cederberg Bukettraube 2011

This beautifully fragrant wine exhibits floral notes of rose petals, with juicy litchi and prominent apricot, which follows through on the palate. A well balanced wine with a delicate sweetness and a crisp acidity.

Enjoyed as an aperitif; partner to spicy fusion foods; Cape Malay curries or as an alternative to cheese platters. This vintage proves to be one of the best over the past decade.
