‘Made with fruit from De Trafford and Keermont, this is a bold, strapping, high octane Cabernet Sauvignon that retains balance and freshness at 15.33% alcohol. Subtly wooded, with layers of tannin and dark fruit and a hint of liquorice, it's a red that will reward cellaring. 2021-28’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

‘A pure chime of ripe black currant and black cherry fruit entices, drawing you into the glass of this fresh and focused, red. The fruit profile glides across the palate, seamlessly knit with supple tannins and aromatic hints of cedar and mocha. Medium- to full-bodied and sculpted, a sanguine note of iron emerges on the plush finish. Best from 2023 through 2030.’ – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 92/100

‘Impressive, deep red colour. Rich intense nutty fruitcake nose with a mix of black and red wild berries. Some tobacco, smoke, toast and some cedar from the fine French oak. Big, intense palate with thick, broad tannins, though still quite fine. Long finish and loads of potential. Delicious with a thick chunk of free-range beef.’ – Winemaker

Producer information De Trafford winery is situated at a height of 380 metres between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, on a farm called Mont Fleur. Only 18 years after its purchase in 1976, could the vineyards be planted due to quota restrictions. The property is owned and run by the Trafford family with David Trafford as winemaker, and they follow a "mindful" approach to winemaking.
