The Trafford family purchased Mont Fleur in 1976 and vineyards were planted in 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.
‘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
