About this Item

Elevation 393, 2010
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Wedged between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, situated on the beautiful Mont Fleur farm, is the boutique De Trafford winery. The Trafford family purchased the land in 1976 and a small vineyard was in place by 1983.
Elevation is a selection of the best barrels from their home vineyard, with this blend aiming to express the remarkable site to its fullest. 

Critics Ratings

‘Merlot leads on 2010 flagship blend named for home-vineyard altitude, cab & shiraz offer near-equal support. Light smoke & dried thyme nuance to blue/black fruit. Yielding & generous, rich, yet tautly muscular too, deserves time.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 4.5* (2016)

‘Fully mature, with dried black currant and plum fruit liberally laced with sage, mint and cedar notes. The loamy, smoky finish still has a good fleshy feel. A lovely, old-school style. Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 91/100 (Oct 2018)
