About this Item

Blueprint Shiraz, 2013
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.

Critics Ratings

Despite vintage challenges, 2013 approaches the quality of 2012 (5 stars, 97 pts). Ticks all fine syrah/shiraz boxes; lithe, precise and detailed, accessible early courtesy only old oak maturation. Grapes largely from neighbouring Keermont.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2016, 4.5*

‘What Dave Trafford calls “an unofficial single vineyard wine” this comes from a 1.3-hectare block at Keermont. Rich, perfumed and dark-fruited, this shows the acidity of a cooler vintage, understated oak and a hint of cumin spice from 5% whole bunches. Drink: 2016-23.’ - Tim Atkin, SA Special Report 2016, 93/100
