Cape Winemakers Guild

De Trafford Perspective 2012

The best Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon new oak barrels selected from our Mont Fleur vineyard 400 metres above sea level. After 1 year the selected barrels were blended in a second fill 700 litre oak barrel and matured for another 9 months. Tasting Notes: Plummy Merlot character shows at first on the nose, followed by a creamy red berry and dusty-cherry character. This echoes on the palate with ripe berry fruit followed by spicy cherry flavours and elegant, dry, soft tannins and a long finish.
