The Five Bordeaux Blend is the estate’s signature blend consisting of the five archetypal Bordeaux varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
A dense, near opaque, ruby red wine showing incredible intensity in the colour of its core, given edge by a lively, yet firm, magenta rim. As the wine is opened and allowed to breathe, the wine presents many different layers. The first impression is that of a rich, dark, fruit driven bouquet with upfront aromas of black plums, black currant and reduced black cherries. For a fleeting moment, these characteristics completely consume the senses, but quickly give way to underlying aromas of cedarwood and graphite. The dense dark fruit flavours are fluently translated from the nose to the palate, where silky, polymerized tannins intersect a fresh mineralty, creating an outstanding mouthfeel with a well-rounded, textural finish that lingers well onto your next sip. This is a focused and elegant blend with fine-grain tannins showing the coolness of the 2013 vintage in Constantia.
This rich red wine would be a delicious partner to a traditional oxtail stew.
