2006 is not far off Pauillac with beautiful graphite, pencil shavings and great structure. Drink over the next 3-7 years.

'06 not a very affable, easy going wine, but a good heart; needs few years patience. Spicy, oaky aromas with promising berry scents; fresh enough, but powerful - note 15.7% alc. Dry & tannic, with savoury fruit lurking.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

Producer information Dedicated to vineyard planting and wine production since 1919, Alto has established a time-tested reputation for age-worthy, investable wines. Alto's '65 and '70 Cabernets are some of the finest SA reds we have ever tasted. Replanting virus-infected vineyards and a renewed drive on Distell's behalf to redefine its fine wine portfolio has helped get Alto back into the fine wine market.
