About this Item

Elevation 393, 2008
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

‘Cabernet-led Bordeaux blend with Shiraz, 2008 shows fennel, hedgerow fruit, tobacco, the oak a strong presence, giving espresso savouriness. Gorgeous, perfect class and terroir for fine-wine collectors.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2011, 4.5*

‘Dark earth, roasted plum, singed cedar and coffee notes form the frame of this old-school Cabernet-led blend, with bay, tobacco, mulled currant, mint and steeped blackberry fruit at the core. The long finish lets the savoury notes play out beautifully.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100 (April 2014)
