Alto MPHS 750ml
A leading red wine producer, with a century old heritage, nestled high up the Helderberg Mountains in South Africa’s Golden Triangle. A champion of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon.
Alto is an ambassador of uncompromising quality Stellenbosch wine to the world.
Proud of its heritage and inherently bound to its sense of place, Alto is one of the few wine farms that have changed winemakers 4 times in over 100 years with 2 being father and son combinations. Family and traditions are important values and are passed down through the generations.
As echoed by the most relevant international critics, Alto wines are suitable for a decade long maturation and are a must-have for the discerning collector.
This wine is a flagship release made in tribute to the estate's previous winemakers, whose initials make up the name. This exclusive blend of noble cultivars is only made in exceptional years and encapsulates the tradition and quality that has run through Alto for over a century.

Absolutely stunning flavours
The nose on this wine is quite unique, sun dried tomatoes and nutmeg
CabSav 90%/CabFranc 10%. tolles intensives violettrot. äusserst süssliche note, kräftig und tief, v.a. schwarze frucht, Brombeere, reife pflaume. Im gaumen etwas weniger süss als in der Nase, minime bittere auf der Zunge, dennoch wunderbar ausgewogen. langes stärkeres Nachbrennen in kehle und Magen. Medium-heavy bodied. Kann auch locker ohne Begleitung getrunken werden.
"So great to be able to receive a regular delivery of good wine rather than the usual 12 bottle case sold by most 'wine clubs' "

Great wine at a great time, everytime
