Klein Constantia Estated Red 2016


Our intention for the Estate Red Blend 2016 was to
produce a wine that represents our unique location. Over
the years we have selected cultivars that best suit our
terroir, planting them on the lower and warmer slopes of
Klein Constantia. Located in one of the coolest wine
growing regions in South Africa, we are able to achieve
ripeness in conjunction with delicate tannins, allowing us
to create a more elegant and refined red wine.
Deep ruby red in appearance. The Estate Red boasts a
lively nose with rich dark fruit from ripe plums to
blackcurrant balanced with a perfume of elegant oak spice.
The palate is refined with delicate red fruit backed up by
well integrated tannin that allows for a long savoury finish.
