This lightly sweet South African white is
made from Bukettraube, a rare German grape
that’s incredibly fragrant.
What You Need To Know
South Africa’s wines have come of
age in recent decades, with a dynamic generation of young
winemakers—such as Cederberg’s David Nieuwoudt—pushing
quality to new levels. Nieuwoudt is the fifth generation to helm
his family’s 1893 estate, but only its third winemaker: Longtime
cattle, tobacco and fruit farmers, the Nieuwoudts began making
wine only in the 1970s. This Bukettraube is a terrific example of
David Nieuwoudt’s penchant for experimentation. This uncommon
German variety thrives in the cool evenings of Nieuwoudt’s
vineyards, which are located in a wilderness preserve at nearly
3,500 feet above sea level.
