Constantia Glen Five Red

31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec matured for 18 months in 100% new French oak (225 litre) barrels

A complex bouquet with a mischievous play on the senses. The first impression is that of a rich, dark-fruit forward wine encompassing aromas of blackcurrant and black cherries, yet beyond the foreground one becomes enthralled by hints of cigar leaf and spices that marry the ripe aromas in perfect harmony. The suggestive nose demands further exploration into the great depth and complexity of fruit that is wrapped in a lenient mantle of vanillary oak. The rich, ripe bouquet is a true advocate of the wine’s cassis core. The dense flavour concentration follows effortlessly from the nose to the palate, where polished tannins provide great texture to balance the wine’s powerful weight. As the wine ensues the tongue, the silky, polymerised tannins responsible for the wine’s elegance poises the integrated minerality to create an outstanding mouthfeel with a well-rounded, textural finish that will linger well onto your next sip.
