    “Big, bold, rich and just off-dry, this shows the classic Cederberg combination of acidity and fruit intensity. Deftly wooded in one-third new oak, this has flavours of honey, cinnamon and vanilla spices and wonderful focus and palate length. 2022-26”

    “Aristocratic 2019, barrel fermented with natural yeast, shows hands-off refinement, with rich, spicy & rounded body, velvet lees texture, layered baked stonefruit. Like 2018 (92 pts), 10 months in 400L French oak, 33% new.”
