Bertrams Cabernet Sauvignon Superior 1978
By Christian Eedes, 15 September 2011
Yesterday Bertrams Cabernet Sauvignon Superior 1978 poured by David Trafford of De Trafford who hoped to demonstrate that South African reds can be age-worthy and the wine didn’t let him down. In colour, red with a pale brown rim. A wine of elegance and complexity. Sweet red fruit, fresh and dried herbs, earthiness and lots more of those hard-to-describe but enchanting tertiary notes that come with age.
