De Trafford Perspective 2007 (750ml)

Winemaking Notes The grapes are from our carefully manicured Mont Fleur vineyard 400m above sea level, between the Helderberg and Stellenbosch mountains. Planted in 1994 with narrow 2m rows and a high planting density of 5000 vines/ha. Open-top fermentation took place in a small tank, two days pre-fermentation soak, fermentation with indigenous yeast and four days post-fermentation maceration. Total 14 days on skins. Drained into new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and 20 months maturation before bottling unfiltered. No fining. Tasting Notes Still quite closed and very youthful, but showing density and hidden complexity. Fine, firm tannins with integrated fruit lingering on the palate with a long finish.
