'Was ‘Destiny Shiraz’, still from that variety, released only when ready. 2014 aged 60 months in bottle after 20 in barrique, 33% new. Bold & savoury, deep-layered dark fruit giving way to spice & meaty complexity, with firm tannin backing. Has a fine future. Magnums too.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Elegant and well-balanced, with dark berry fruits, black currant and black berries infused with nutmeg on the nose. Vibrant and mouth-filling fruits on the palate with smooth tannins and a harmonious finish.' – Winemaker

Producer information In 1996, after moving to South Africa, Samantha and Erny Bürgin started searching the winelands for the perfect piece of land. They found it on the slopes of the Simonsberg and began to transform the farm from scratch – finding water, laying electricity cables, testing soil and developing vineyards. Through all its challenges, they persevered and created a boutique wine farm which also had an upmarket guest house, restaurant, tasting facility and cellar. They made small quantities of handcrafted wines under the name Mont Destin, meaning ‘mountain of destiny’.
