The Dornier CMD is a full-bodied and elegant blend made from Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes come from three unique vineyards, which produce very small quantities of finely concentrated berries. This is also reflected in the great aromas of the red wine: Intense fruit nuances of berries and black cherries are accompanied by light oak notes and the firm tannin structure culminates in a long finish. The Dornier CMD spent 18 months in French oak and goes perfectly with various meat dishes such as lamb chops, carpaccio or fillet steak.

Expert Judgement

"Smoky, savoury dark-berried allure on 14 flagship blend. Still malbec-led, but now with petit verdot & cab in the (75/20/5) mix. Handsome, velvet texture, suave rather than powerful, with 60% new oak in harmony." John Platter Wine Guide 2019

Family-owned Dornier Winery

The winery consists of two estates that had originally been separated; their roots reach back until the late 17th century. The actual Dornier winery as it exists today has only been around since 1995. Back then, the family Dornier bought the first two of its five wine farms. It is still run by the family today, supported by an excellent team of winemakers and employees. The premium sector is clearly the focus which is obtained through a constantly high quality on the wine slope, an almost perfectionist standard as well as an experienced and skilled implementation. Since 2006, the estate is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative and therefore significantly supports sustainable cultivation in South Africa.

Modern Wines of an outstanding Quality

The new built wine cellar is also an eye catcher like the two restored historic buildings from the 18 th and 19 th century and with its curved roof, the use of brick and reflecting materials, it sets an architectonical course. The wines are very modern and belong to the high-end class of South Africa. They are aimed at the discerning gourmet that likes traditional notes of a good wine but also looks for strong and at the same time elegant innovations in the bouquet as well as taste.

Relax and unwind

At the winery, visitors can easily relax and unwind. A calm and contemplative atmosphere in the modern but never obtrusive architecture makes for the needed relaxation. The fascinating view of the Stellenbosch Mountains in the middle of fynbos hills and the planted vines impressively supports that effect. The whole estate is filled with a special hospitality that just makes you want to grab a glass of wine and have a good time. The restaurant Bodega offers seasonal menus which consist of locally and fresh ingredients and combines modern preparation with a classic, almost timeless style.
