The High Road Directors Reserve 2019

The High Road Directors Reserve 2019

R795,00

Beautiful deep garnet colour. The nose has heady aromas of black fruits and blueberry notes and hints of Christmas cake with overtones of cigar box, vanilla and five spice. The palate is full and rich packed with dark fruits, cedar, vanilla spice and dried herbs. The finish is dry and lingering.

About the Wine Estate

For those whose sense of taste favours the elegance and complexity of classic Bordeaux-style reds, The High Road is the perfect destination. Established in 2003 as a boutique négociant producer, The High Road has cultivated a considerable reputation amongst Bordeaux aficionados. The brand has been built on four unwavering pillars of distinction: exclusive sourcing of quality grapes perfected by the Stellenbosch Terroir, a single-minded focus on Bordeaux Varietals, an insistence on using a considered selection of fine French Oak barrels, and their proprietary High Road Practices. Guided by their consultant winemakers for the past 15 vintages, they have succeeded in producing exceptional vintage-specific wines with the elegance, intrinsic depth and distinction of a classic Bordeaux red at their core. The epitome of Bordeaux, yet expressing a sense of place that is uniquely Stellenbosch.
