Cape Winemakers Guild

De Trafford Perspective 2017 (1.5 L bottles)

The best new French oak barrels of our Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from our Mont Fleur vineyard 393m above sea level were selected. After a year, the barrels were blended into a single old 700 litre barrel and matured for a further nine months. Twothirds were bottled especially for the Guild Auction and the balance added to our Elevation 393 blend. Wild yeast fermentation, no fining, no filtration.

Tasting Notes: Deep, bright red colour. Dark berry and cherry nose with graphite, herbs, chalk and cedar notes. Tightly structured, elegant palate with fine tannins and well balanced fruit and savoury aspects.

Winemaker: David Trafford
