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.
This opulent Shiraz has a deep, dark, almost black colour. In a style, typical of Constantia Shiraz, its nose is aromatic and shows nuances of black currant, cracked black pepper, liquorice and violets. Beautiful rich, ripe flavours follow through on the palate. This bold red has fine tannin which allows from drinking well in its youth but also has the potential to mature with time.
