Cederberg Bukettraube 2012

Cederberg Bukettraube 2012

A rare and beautiful aromatic wine which exhibits delicate floral notes of rose petals, dried mango, apricot and muscat flavours. A well balanced wine with a delicate sweetness and a crisp acidity. This vintage proves to be one of the best over the past decade.

Enjoyed as an aperitif; partner to spicy fusion foods – not hot; Cape Malay curries, or as an alternative to certain cheeses.
