About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2003
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.
Their powerful and long-aging Cabernet Sauvignon has a become cult ever since their first 1992 vintage. Known for their rich and powerful reds, the majestic 2003 vintage experienced a late warm and dry summer resulting in a perfect ripening. De Trafford wines are renowned for their incredible aging potential.

Critics Ratings

‘Dark and smoky, with ripe currant and blackberry fruit pushed from behind by bittersweet cocoa powder and tar notes. Solid, muscular finish.’  Wine Spectator, 91/100
