Alto Red Wines
Alto is the oldest red wine estate in South Africa and in our eight decade history; only four winemakers have been responsible for crafting our award-winning wines. Find out more about these wines below or experience them for yourself when you visit our estate in the Stellenbosch Winelands.
Alto Fine Old Vintage
Crafted in the manner of Shiraz, the short fermentation is halted by the addition of fine brandy spirits in the traditional manner and the Alto Fine Old Vintage is aged for 12 months in oak barrels.
The powerfully sleek micro-cuvée was created to honour the location of our estate and named after the four craftsmen who have made wine here over the last eight decades.
Our award-winning Shiraz is a full-bodied offering whose spicy blackcurrant and prune aroma gives way to a creamy mouthfeel with a good tannic backbone.
Alto Cabernet Sauvignon
Born from the exceptional terroir of the Stellenbosch Winelands, this Alto red is renowned for its flavours of cherries, tobacco and dark chocolate.
The dark ruby Alto Rouge consists of an exquisite blend of four varietals – Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and is the ideal pairing for red meat dishes.
