About this Item

2011 Elevation 393
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

‘Stately Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend with 22% each Merlot and Shiraz. ‘393’ denotes the altitude of the single-block origin. Robust, with cigar box whiffs. A keeper.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2017, 4.5*

‘Both of the 393 wines are made exclusively with fruit from the De Trafford farm on Stellenbosch Mountain. Made without Cabernet Franc in 2011, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Syrah sees 100% new wood and is an ambitious, ripely textured wine with plum, fruitcake and liquorice notes combining on the palate.’ - Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2017, 93/100
