A subtle, elegant nose displays cassis, soy, vanilla and green bean aromas. Many of Groot Constantia’s wines, including this one, have a silky mouthfeel, with just the right amount of oak balancing the soft tannins and acidity. Mixed berry, bell pepper and tobacco flavors continue through a decently long finish.
Has dominant stably, earthy aromas and flavors. While not a fruity wine, it still has a beautiful mouthfeel, creamy, yet with good acidity. Finishes spicy and long. Imported by 57 Main Street Wine Co.
Although it comes from despite a cooler climate than Stellenbosch, this wine achieved 14.5% alcohol. But you wouldn’t know it, as it has elegant flavors of ripe cherry, plum and chocolate in a beautifully balanced framework. Groot Constantia’s reds all have a silky texture, and this one is no different. The nose favors brown sugar and chocolate over muted red berry…
Cassis, black pepper and smoked meat start this stylish Shiraz from the venerable estate. A beautiful balance of savory black fruit and spice layers on the palate, followed by a lingering, vanilla spice finish. Ageable and elegant.
From a producer of famed whites comes a beautiful Cabernet with an elegant, poised character. Mint, clove and deep berry on the nose are followed on the palate, where balanced tannins and spice offer serious flavor. The overall character is rich but softer, making it a lovely food wine.
This displays structured but elegant layers of cinnamon spice and soft berry and the finish is long and gentle. The nose is gamy and spicy but classically subdued. A delicious food wine with aging potential.
