Tasting notes:
'From Stellenbosch’s reputed ‘Golden Triangle’, 2009 is classically structured & taut. Elegant, despite youth, with characteristic blackcurrant & subtle oak nuance. Cellarworthy table mate.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'Again, gravelly and earthy with a touch more depth on the magnum. Dense, powerful and rich. The layered palate ends dry and focused.' – Wine Cellar, 94.4/100 (Dec 2018)

About Alto Estate:
Dedicated to vineyard planting and wine production since 1919, Alto has established a time-tested reputation for age-worthy, investable wines. Alto’s ‘65 and ‘70 Cabernets are some of the finest SA reds we have ever tasted. Replanting virus-infected vineyards and a renewed drive on Distell’s behalf to redefine its fine wine portfolio has helped get Alto back into the fine wine market.
