WINEMAKER'S TASTING NOTES:

Deep scarlet colour with a violet tinged robe, the 2012 Destinae is true "right bank” in composition owing to the remarkable Merlot in this vintage. The nose is fragrant with floral and peppery notes from the Cabernets in the blend. The wine shows firm structure and leaves a rich coating of fine tannins across the palate that carry through the finish. Perfect oak integration supports the cherry and blackberry characters on the palate and has a savoury quality with lingering touches of vanilla and coffee. Still youthful, we expect this Destinae to be long lived with great evolution through its cellaring life.

 

ENJOY FROM: 4-10+ years from vintage.
