Notes

Mont Destin is a inspirational, boutique wine estate situated on the world renowned Stellenbosch Wine Route in the winelands of the Western Cape. After falling in love in 1995 and searching for a home, Ernest and Samantha Bürgin, discovered this magical piece of land with beautiful views of the Table Mountain. So they named it their 'Mountain of Destiny'. Here they passionately handcraft small quantities of award-winning, exclusive and elegant red wines.

Tasting notes:
'Voluptuous, intense, sensuous and well-balanced. Complex and layered with mouth filling rich, ripe red and black berries with hints of pepper and spice. The tannins are supple and all the components of the wine are in harmony. The finish is long and savory.' – Winemaker

Vinification:
The grapes were handpicked and transported to the cellar in small lug boxes. On arrival at the winery, the bunches underwent sorting, followed by destemming, then further hand- sorting of the berries to remove any remaining stems and unripe or imperfect fruit. Fermentation was slow and gentle. The skins were basket-pressed and the wine matured for 18 months in 2 new French oak barrels and 1 second-fill French oak barrel. Each bottle is hand labelled and the labels are hand numbered and signed. Our family heirloom ring is then pressed into the gold wax seal which adorns the front label. This time consuming process further emphasises the passion we have to create the Destiny.
