Cordoba is situated high up on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, and while it’s now under highly anticipated revival, the last vintage produced to date was 2004. After the maiden 1995 vintage acquired 5 stars in the 1999 edition of Platter’s, the wine (along with their maker, Chris Keet) was propelled to cult-like status, amplified further by their small production. Crescendo was remarkable in that the wine was made in an austere, unapologetically tannic style, whilst the industry moved towards big plush reds.

‘A Cape touchstone aiming to compete with St Emilion’s best ... 500 cases only. New Cape star since maiden 1995.’  Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2002, 4.5 stars
