Deep bright red color. Intense, but elegant wild and red berry fruit with complex spice and white pepper nuances—all very persistent. Lovely purity of fruit on the palate, despite the range of interesting secondary flavors—including spice, pepper, and subtle oak. Fine, dry, and persistent finish.

De Trafford Winery is situated on the beautiful Mont Fleur farm set at the top of a steep valley above Stellenbosch, between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains. This mountain farm was purchased in 1976 by the Trafford family. Many of its high-altitude slopes were deemed suitable for high-quality red grape varieties. Unfortunately, due to absurd quota restrictions, planting a commercial vineyard required waiting for 18 years. So, in 1983 a small vineyard was established to produce experimental wines—consumed by family and friends only! In 1991, when the quota restrictions were lifted, the winery was registered in time for the 1992 harvest. Today, De Trafford still aims to produce high-quality red wines which convey the personality and uniqueness of their mountain site to the fullest. Their tiny production of 3500 cases/harvest means that they can pay attention to every detail.
