'Consistently excellent cab, styled for 5-10 years (hence 1.5, 3 & 5L formats) yet accessible young. 2017’s deep dark-fruit core in harmony with cedar & graphite from usual 18 months oak, 60% new. Firm yet elegant tannins, mineral finish.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'Born from the exceptional terroir of the Stellenbosch Winelands, this Alto red is renowned for its full-bodied and rich with ripe but elegant tannins. Dark intense plum red colour. Bouquet: Red fruit and well integrated Cedarwood spice with savoury notes. Dark chocolate with a hint of chalky minerals. Taste: Deep, rich and intense with great balance between structure and finesse. Fine grained tannins. Generosity of texture and depth.' – Winemaker

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.
