Groot Constantia is situated on the Cape Peninsula overlooking False Bay. The vineyards are tucked in the steep valley on the eastern side of Table Mountain. The area is blessed with a maritime climate due to the oceans on both sides combined with cool southern slopes and deep mountain soils provides the ideal setting for the making of top quality wines.
The wine spent 11 months in 40% new French oak barrels and the balance in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels.
A rich cool climate Pinotage with deep, dark red colour. A multi-layered complexity of bright red fruit, black berries, black cherries, plums and ripe strawberries with hints of dark chocolate and cinnamon spice on the nose. Fresh fruits like juicy plums, cherries and black currant follow through on the palate to finish with a soft spicy aftertaste. This Pinotage is very drinkable in its youth, but will age gracefully if stored correctly.
Enjoy this wine with a rich and hearty beef casserole. Springbok fillets with peppercorn sauce. Slow-roasted leg of lamb.
