Dornier Donatus Red 2003

Michelangelo 2006 GOLD
IWSC 2006 SILVER & Best in Class
Decanter World Wine Awards 2006 SILVER

With its deep red colour this wine possesses multi-layered aspects. At first one is encountered by the luscious fruit of cherry and blackberry, sidelined by ever-present hints of cedar and cassis and perhaps even slight nuances of tobacco on the nose. Moving on to the palate one unearths elegance, finesse and poise common to this combination of Bordeaux varieties with soft tannins and a fresh acidity providing for a lengthy aftertaste of crisp fruit and liquorice. A truly well balanced wine.
