Cape Winemakers Guild

De Trafford Perspective 2017 (750ml 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
