Dr Charles Niehaus, the top tier signature red wine named after Roodeberg’s illustrious founder, has won a Gold medal for the second consecutive vintage at the 27th Mundus Vini Grand International Wine Awards in Germany.

Both the 2017 and the 2016 vintages of Roodeberg Dr Charles Niehaus were awarded gold medals respectively at Mundus Vini 2020 and 2019, Germany’s top international wine competition.

Fruit purity and complexity are the crux of this super-premium Roodeberg that has evolved since its maiden vintage in 2010 into a formidable Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz driven blend.

The wine was launched as the jewel in the Roodeberg crown to honour Dr Niehaus for his pioneering winemaking achievements and creator of this cherished South African wine brand over 70 years ago.

The evolution of the Dr Charles Niehaus blend into a superbly concentrated and integrated wine can be attributed to constant experimentation with different grape varieties and different regions over the past eight years.

“The wine is all about selecting the best of the best from the vineyards, the individual bunches and the berries, down to the finest barrels for the final blend. Our goal is to produce the best super-premium blend that our vineyards can deliver,” says Roodeberg winemaker Louwritz Louw.

The award winning 2017 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (39%), Shiraz (37%), Malbec (10%), Merlot (7) and Cabernet Franc (7%). Juicy and concentrated with great depth, it erupts in your glass with aromatic layers of blackcurrant and plum enlivened by hints of violets, sweet spice and white pepper. The wine is generous and well-integrated on the palate with a firm tannin structure rewarding with a smooth and lingering finish.
