De Trafford Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2004

Member Review by Caroline Henry:

Deep ruby in color, with a nose of red berries, a hint of cassis and some cedar. An elegant wine, with a firm tannic structure and good acidity; pretty fruit-forward on the palate with an explosion of red and black berries in the mid palate and a little cocoa and dried herbs in the smoky finish.

De Trafford Winery is situated on the beautiful Mont Fleur farm set at the top of a dramatic valley above Stellenbosch, 380m up between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, right at the end of the Blaauwklip road, between Stellenbosch and Somerset West. The history of wine growing on this mountain farm started with the purchase of the property in 1976 by the Trafford family as inaccessible grazing land. Many of the high altitude slopes were deemed suitable for high quality red grape varieties. Unfortunately, due to the absurd quota restrictions, planting a commercial vineyard had to wait 18 years. In 1983 a small vineyard was established to produce experimental wines - consumed by family and friends! These were our learning curve years ( 1984 - 1991 ), which included lots of help and advice from local winemakers and working experience in France, particularly in the Bordeaux area. Read less
