Below is the October, 2006 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:


2003 de Trafford

Cabernet Sauvignon

Stellenbosch, South Africa

de Trafford WineryDe Trafford Winery is situated on the beautiful Mont Fleur farm set at the top of a dramatic valley above Stellenbosch. The history of wine growing on this mountain farm started with the purchase of the property in 1976 by the Trafford family as inaccessible grazing land.

However, many of these high altitude slopes were deemed suitable for high quality red grape varieties, so in 1983 a small vineyard was established to produce experimental wines - consumed by family and friends! These were their learning curve years (1984 - 1991), which included lots of help and advice from local winemakers and working experience in France, particularly in the Bordeaux area.

Mont FleurDe Trafford wines vary in their tasting qualities, but they have a distinctive personality - intensely flavored and finely structured with great length and finesse. These are naturally made, living wines which will deposit a sediment - a healthy sign of a handcrafted wine.

The growing and ripening period for this vintage was nearly perfect. A light irrigation at veraison ensured the grapes got through the late, warm, dry summer without too much stress. The wines have intense fruit, excellent structure and great maturation potential. Deep, dark, brooding red color. Cassis, ripe mulberries, tobacco and cedar nose. Intense fruit flavors and firm, persistent tannins follow through to a long, dry finish. Probably best between 2008 2018. Enjoy with classic meat dishes.

Awarded 91 Points by The Wine Spectator.
