David Nieuwoudt's 2013 CWG Auction Wine

Cederberg Teen Die Hoog Shiraz 2011100% Shiraz Wine of Origin Cederberg

The name ‘Teen die Hoog’ was given by the workers on the farm - not because they see this cold south easterly facing red slate hill as the highest vineyard in the country, but because they see it as the toughest pick of the season. The grapes were picked at great phenolic ripeness at the beginning of April. Cold maceration for four days followed by pump-overs every six hours. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak where it matured for 15 months. Unfiltered – a selection of the three best barrels.

Tasting Notes: Intense Shiraz fruit with lots of red berries and mulberries. A combination of wild herbs, violets and white pepper aroma; distinctive of the high lying red slate vineyards. A firm structure with sweet spice and roasted coffee bean flavours that linger on the palate. A wine to mature and develop superbly over the next four to eight years.
