'Barrel-fermented 2019, as always textured & layered, with fresh apple, caramelised orchard fruit & creamy vanilla on a rounded palate, lingering, refreshing roasted nut finish. From Keermont, Helderberg & Bottelary, 10 months in mixed barrels, some new. Unfiltered. Also 1.5L.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Combining intensity and concentration with wonderful freshness and vivacity, this is a s subtly wooded Chenin Blanc from David Trafford, showing tarte tatin, peach and citrus zest flavours, some nutmeg spice and a hint of creamy oak sweetness. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

Producer information De Trafford winery is situated at a height of 380 metres between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, on a farm called Mont Fleur. Only 18 years after its purchase in 1976, could the vineyards be planted due to quota restrictions. The property is owned and run by the Trafford family with David Trafford as winemaker, and they follow a 'mindful' approach to winemaking.
