Cederberg Bukettraube 2013

Cederberg Bukettraube 2013

A rare cultivar with less than 70 hectares left in the world. Cederberg Bukettraube is an explosion of aroma and flavour. It has prominent muscat flavours with apricot and floral notes on the nose. A well balanced wine with a delicate sweetness and a crisp acidity.

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