A very special wine! Intense aromas of red cherries and black pepper are underpinned by a smoky, earthy background. On the palate, it shows mellow, fresh tannins and lingering notes of eucalyptus, with a delicious and persistent finish. The grapes were 100% hand-harvested into 18-kilogram boxes, carefully selected, and then fermented to dryness in 25,000 litre stainless steel tanks. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts and lasted for seven to 10 days at controlled temperatures of between 25 to 28°C. Extended skin maceration lasted for an additional six to eight days, followed by 100% malolactic conversion. The wine was matured in 225 litre French oak barrels of second and third use for a period of 10 to 12 months.

Groot Constantia is South Africa's oldest estate and one of South Africa's most visited tourist attractions. In 1685, Cape Governor Simon van der Stel built a farm in the foothills of Table Mountain, which he named Constantia. Groot Constantia received world acclaim from Napoleon, Bismarck and King Louis Philippe of France who was the biggest single buyer of Groot Constantia wines. They had to sell to the Cape government after phylloxera ravaged the vineyards. Now, the total estate covers 165 hectares, of which 87 hectares are planted at an altitude of 60 to 280 metres above sea level.
