User Reviews for De Trafford Shiraz Stellenbosch

Winemaker's Notes:

Self-taught winemaker and former architect David Trafford's small but stellar production is regularly cited as being among the Cape's very best. David's winemaking philosophy is deceptively simple: to make the best possible wine he can whilst retaining a sense of place. To do this he embraces Stellenbosch's warm, sunny climate and rich, clay soils, noting that his vines are not planted on "the shagged out alluvial plains of the Medoc with their miserable climate". The wines tend to agree with him. They have rich fruit and a juicy ripeness but they are crisply pressed and structured too. His ability to blend New World innovation and Old World methodology can perhaps be best seen in his sweet Straw Wine, which has quickly become one of the Cape's most fiercely sought after wines. In this rich and elegant Shiraz, the nose shows intense blackberry fruit with mocha chocolate, hints of cocoa, minerals, pepper, licourice and toast. Enhancing the nose, there is a big, rich palate with complex fruit and plenty of fine tannins dragging the fruit along to an elegant, long finish. Drinking well now but will last ten years. Complement this wine with strong flavoured red meat, especially local venison and ostrich.
