De Trafford Perspective 2005

34% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon One third each: Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon. This Auction wine is a selection of a single best barrel of each variety from our small 3 hectare Mont Fleur vineyard, 380 metres up between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg Mountains. The soil is a deep red Hutton with an ideal combination of good drainage and good moisture retention. The vines are planted to a relatively high density of 5000 vines / ha ensuring that each vine does not produce much more than 1kg. Matured for 23 months in new French oak and bottled without fining or filtration. Tasting note: The perfectly ripe fruit shows in the deep colour and intense, complex nose. A rich, powerful wine with a long fine tannin finish.
