Estate Red 2017

Klein Constantia

Terroir:Vinification: Each parcel is carefully identified and blocks are split into multiple portions in order to harvest at the perfect ripeness. The grapes are then bunch and berry sorted to ensure that only the healthiest berries are selected. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 40 % new French oak barrels after alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 15 months before blending and bottling.

Additional Information

Deep ruby red in appearance. Intense aromas of black and red fruit burst on the nose followed by a delicate wood spice. The rich and complex palate is balanced with bold tannins and an elegant backbone. The wine concludes with a long velvety finish.
