2009, as we have noted in the past, is a wine for the long term. Dense and powerful, showing dried herbs backed by powerful tannins. Drink over the next decade and buy magnums to keep well past 2030.

'From Stellenbosch’s reputed ‘Golden Triangle’, 2009 is classically structured & taut. Elegant, despite youth, with characteristic blackcurrant & subtle oak nuance. Cellarworthy table mate.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'Fresh and juicy promise on the nose leads to cassis, earthy and savoury notes. Herbal lift adds freshness. But pure, lacy, deep and alluring. Beautiful and gravelly to end.' – Roland Peens (tasted December 2018), Wine Cellar, 93.6/100

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.
