Gold and regional trophy for Ghost Corner Sauvignon at the Decanter Awards

David Nieuwoudt Ghost Corner Sauvignon Blanc 2012 has won the Decanter World Wine Award Regional Trophy – South African Sauvignon Blanc above fifteen pounds - at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2013.

About Ghost Corner - Not content with making award-winning wines in the Cederberg, David Nieuwoudt spotted the huge potential of Elim, a small and promising maritime region within the Cape Agulhas district, close to South Africa's most southerly point. Elim and the Cederberg have one thing in common and that is a cool climate. Ghost Corner’s outstanding white wines have pioneered a new style for South African white wine. The Ghost Corner Sauvignon is less fruity than the Cederberg Sauvignon with more green fruit and savoury characters. Skin and lees ageing enhance its richness.    

In the past the following wines from Cederberg also won regional trophies at the Decanter Wine Awards:

- Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc 2008

- Five Generation Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

- Five Generations Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

- Cederberg Shiraz 2006
