Webersburg on the Helderburg in Stellenbosch has always had a high reputation for its single-variety Cabernet Sauvignon but its Bordeaux-style red blend from the 2011 as tasted at the awards ceremony for the French judged Classic Wine Trophy competition on Friday night is pretty smart, too.

A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 14% Petit Verdot, it was mautred in 300-litre French oak barrels. 70% new.

Mainly red fruit and some attractive herbal character on the nose and palate. Medium bodied with fresh acidity and firm but fine tannins. Good detail and a long finish – a classic Stellenbosch red. Wine Cellar price: R150 a bottle.

Score: 92/100.
