De Trafford Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

David Trafford, owner and winemaker, enjoyed a successful career as an architect before changing direction and pursuing his passion for winemaking. His wife, Rita, is a qualified chef and artist. Each of the De Trafford labels is designed by one of the dynamic pair.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of only two wines, along with Merlot, De Trafford has released every year since its maiden vintage in 1992. They have made a serious name for themselves in those past three decades.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used for this wine are sourced from four different blocks on seperate high altitude vineyards. They’re grown on decomposed granite, and range from nine to twenty-four years of age, producing deliciously concentrated berries.

This wine has a nose of fresh cranberry and raspberry. They carry over to the palate with fruitcake, sweet spice, a slight savouriness, and a long dry finish. It’s a wine with poise and finesse, but one that is also rich and indulgent. Drink now to 2035.
