A deep, but brilliant, purple and ruby colour with blue highlights. The aroma is vibrant, forward and youthful with blackberry, pure raspberry and tobacco undertones. Supple tannins with integrated quality oak gives this wine both complexity and lovely palate length. The finish shows elegance and hidden power. The dry conditions and fastidious winemaking practices by the team at Destiny Bay have made this a well-crafted wine with great definition.
