About this Item

Elevation 393, 2009
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

‘Barrel selection, named for home-vineyard altitude. Cabernet-led Bordeaux blend and Shiraz, each playing their part in 2009. Plush dark berries, whiffs of salty liquorice, scrub, backed by muscular tannins designed for long, slow, bottle evolution.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2013, 4.5*

‘Mature, with coffee, roasted vanilla, dark earth and smoldering tobacco leaf notes leading to a solid core of dark currant, plum and blackberry fruit, well-mulled and lined with olive and black tea accents. A long, sweet cedar detail lets the finish glide.’ -  James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100 (Sept 2016)
