Dornier Donatus 2017, 94 Points, Top 10 Cape Bordeaux Red Blend now available at The Wine Lounge at Dornier
Dornier Donatus, Dornier’s Bordeaux style red blend saw its maiden release in 2002. Originally a blend of only 3 grape varieties, today Dornier Donatus includes all 5 Bordeaux red varieties. All vintages of Donatus have always been highly rated by wine critics locally and internationally, but efforts incorporated in the vineyards and in the cellar have culminated in the 2017 vintage to deliver the quintessential elegance and intensity aimed for at Dornier.
67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11.5% Malbec, 11.5% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot. Matured for 18 months in French oak, one-third new. Red and black fruit, dried herbs, some earthiness, incense and vanilla on the nose. The palate possesses huge intensity – concentrated and smooth textured yet not without freshness, the finish gently savoury. Both luscious and powerful.
Dornier Donatus is available to purchase online or at The Wine Lounge at Dornier for R350.00 per bottle.⯇ Return to news
