Established in 2003 as a boutique négociant wine producer, The High Road has cultivated a considerable reputation amongst Bordeaux aficionados. The epitome of Bordeaux yet expressing a sense of place that is uniquely Stellenbosch.
The brand has been built on four unwavering pillars of distinction: exclusive sourcing of quality grapes perfected by the Stellenbosch Terroir, a single-minded focus on Bordeaux Varietals, an insistence on using a considered selection of fine French Oak barrels, and our proprietary High Road Practices.
The palate has a soft ripe full fruit driven entry which complements the nose with a depth and length. The blackcurrant and blueberries are forward on the palate with a long lingering middle palate helped by the dark fruit. The fruit is open and easily tasted but with more to come with time. The tannins are subtle and full allowing one to be able to drink the wine now. This wine should age very well with the correct cellaring. The wine is very well balanced and has a long lingering fruit driven after palate with well-defined tannins. This wine is able to be enjoyed on its own or with one’s favourite dish.
