About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2000
4 (1 x 4) 1500ml
The Iconic Helderberg property has title deeds back to 1693. Hennie and son Manie Malan recognized the property’s unique terroir for crafting full-bodied red wines early on, but it was Piet du Toit in 1959 that put Alto on top. Heritage and tradition married with evolution and innovation are the hallmarks of this estate situated in the golden triangle of Stellenbosch. Only five winemakers have crafted wines at Alto over eight decades.
This impressive Cabernet Sauvignon blends ‘Old World’ elegance with the full-bodied, fruit-driven character typical of wines from an area known as the golden Triangle. Named for its superior terroir, the Golden Triangle lies at the heart of Stellenbosch’s reputation for producing South Africa’s defining Cabernet Sauvignons.

Critics Ratings

'Gorgeous nose of sour cherry, cassis & tar. Showing some evolution in classical secondary Cabernet characters of cedar & cigar box, but with a good core of sweet, ripe red fruit. Medium body. Dusty tannins promising short term further ageing potential in large format (Magnum)' - 90/100 Higgo Jacobs
