This is a rare cultivar with less than 100 hectares left in the world and while there are small parcels in Germany and Alsace, Bukketraube seems to have found its calling in South Africa. 

Located about 250km north of Cape town on the west coast of South Africa, Cederberg Private Cellar is a lone producer nestled inside the ward of Cederberg in the Western Cape. It's unique in that it doesn't fit inside any other region or district, and Cederberg Estate is the sole occupier of this ward. Historically others have tried, (and failed) to make wine here but as viticultural work in this hostile and arid region is nigh on impossible, only the Nieuwoudt family have stayed the course. They are also lucky to have the distinction of being the highest altitude vineyard in the Western Cape, enjoying this rare high altitude terroir to produce fine and well poised cool-climate wines.

One of the rare white grapes of the world - akin to off dry or medium dry Riesling, have it with Thai!

Tasting Note:

A floral Bukettraube with notes of chamomile and white blossom aromas. Hints of apricot, dried fruit and honey dew follows through on palate. Semi-Sweet on palate that lead to a sensational creamy finish. A great food pairing wine.

The fermentation is stopped leaving a natural residual sugar of 19.5g/l, classified as semi-sweet aromatic white. Great with spicy foods, but not hot food.

This is a Medium Sweet, Medium+ bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and No tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
