Cape Winemakers Guild

De Trafford Perspective 2003

Grapes from our carefully manicured Mont Fleur vineyard 400m above sea level, between the Helderberg and Stellenbosch Mountains. Open top fermentation in a small tank, 3 days pre fermentation soak, fermentation with indigenous yeasts and four days post fermentation maceration. Total 16 days on skins. Maximum temperature 29 degrees C. Drained to new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and 20 months maturation before bottling unfiltered. No fining. Tasting Note: Complex, spicy fruit and oak entwined with cranberry nuances. Purity of fruit and spicy, dusty oak on the palate persists on the long dry finish.

Winemaker: David Trafford
