About this Item

FIVE, 2008
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Perched just beneath Constantia Nek, this picturesque boutique wine estate has been part of the Constania valley’s great tradition of winegrowing since 2000. The Waibel family must be credited for turning this farm around and placing it under the steady eye of overseer and Bordeaux legend, Dominique Hebrard, with Justin van Wyk’s skilled hand in the cellar. The flagship range aptly named Two, Three and Five, according to the combination of Bordeaux varietals in the blend make up has quickly garnered strong following for their consistent power and detail.
This vintage came joint third in a tasting of 44 of the world’s best wines by the Swiss publication BLICK, including receiving an identical score as the iconic Chateau Mouton-Rothschild.

Critics Ratings

Used to just bear estate name. New one, with 08, refers to Bordeaux quintet make-up. Deep, spice-laden fragrance sets classy tone for this sleek, cab-franc-led blend. Ample sweet flesh, complexities need further 4-6 years to emerge from vibrant, taut structure.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2013, 4.5*

A supple, restrained style, with tasty roasted fig, black currant paste, mulled spice and a whiff of tobacco curling through the finish. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot... 2,080 cases made.’ – Wine Spectator (Tasted 2012), 89/100
