Cabernet Sauvignon, 1982
1 (1 x 1) 5000ml
This 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. 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. Classic Alto elegance, in perfect drinking condition out of the large formats. From the celebrated 1982 vintage, and in a unique 5L bottle, this vintage was a Gold medal winner at SA Young Wine Show, made to last and not released from the farm until aged for 6 years in those days.
