WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES: A lovely deep, red, colour in the glass gives this wine a classic Claret appearance. The aromatics are expressive of the bright, sunny conditions of the 2019 vintage with a diverse composition of berry fruits that cross the spectrum from black, to blue, to red fruits. Underneath the inviting fruit notes is a touch of lavender and cinnamon before the Cabernet Sauvignon lifts out of the background. The palate is highly polished and bright while remaining generous and mouth-coating before it leaves a long finish that is reminiscent of Cherries Jubilee. A classic Destinae upon release, it promises a long life in the cellar and truly captures the essence of the stunning 2019 vintage. ENJOY FROM: 4-12+ years from vintage.
