Dinner at De Wijnhuis in downtown Stellenbosch. Great food and amazing wine list. Was shocked to see some older wines, very unusual in South Africa. Highly recommend.

Medium mix of ruby and garnet red. Ripe and plush nose with layers of sweet spices, black currants, cassis, plums and a touch of red earthiness. Fully integrated tannins (5.5/10) with a medium body. Good structure on the palate with some cedar, black currants, sweet tobacco and light dustiness. Great acidity with a lingering finish. Drink now.

Woodlands

Margaret Woodlands Vineyard Red Blend 2010

Mid to deep Ruby. Black currant and Margaret River herbaceous notes. Medium weight with medium plus intensity. Amazing quality for this Woodlands 2nd wine. Many Margaret River producers would be happy to have this as their No. 1 wine. From another good year in the Margaret River - will go on for at least another 5 to 10 years. — 6 days ago

The Garland Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Выпито 24.09.19 в Бальзамине в г. Обнинске. Первая проба этого шикарного каберне совиньона 2011 года. Бутылка лимитированной серии ( N 560) в великодлепном подарочном футляре с сертификатом и описанием урожая. При первом глотке чувствуется маслянистость. Затем проступают нотки вишни и на послевкусие появляется. перчинка. Достойное вино из первой десятки Сталенбоша. Однозначно , надо купить несколько ящиков. — 23 days ago

de Trafford

Elevation 393 Red Blend 2007

This Stellenbosch Cabernet blend gets its name from being 393 metres above sea level. Deep Ruby in colour. Aromas of coal dust, liquorice, Tomato Bush, Capsicum and stalky green Notes. On the palate initial impressions were lacking in fruit. More austere than expected. Certainly very different to most Napa Valley Cabernets that I’ve had. Medium bodied. I bought this wine in 2012 at the cellar door and it was quite the trek to drive to de Trafford over many dirt roads. One of the 1001 wines. — 22 days ago
