Groot Constantia Red Bordeaux Blend Constantia Blanc de Noir 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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 on 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 a height of 60 - 280 metres above sea level. The climate is generally cool resulting in complex and balanced wines.

Light pink blend made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Delicious red cherries and strawberries with a balanced sweetness and lively acidity
