Constantia Glen’s Flagship wine. A classic Constantia blend of five Bordeaux varieties– Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. An excellent example of a full bodied Bordeaux blend with great body on the palate and an abundance of delicious red wine characters.
A dense, near opaque, ruby red wine showing incredible intensity in the color 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 flavors are fluently translated from the nose to the palate, where silky, polymerized tannins intersect a fresh minerality, creating an outstanding mouthfeel with a well-rounded, textural finish that lingers well onto your next sip.
