About the producer
In 1685 Cape Governor Simon van der Stel built a farm on Table Mountain, which he named Constantia. Groot Constantia received 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 a height of 60 – 280 metres above sea level. The climate is generally cool resulting in complex and balanced wines.

About the wine
A full bodied style with an intense colour and prominent varietal aromas. Aromas of confected red cherries and dark chocolate, with hints of coffee and toasty oak well balanced by ripe yet firm tannins on the finish.
