About this Item

Estate Red, 2014
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Described as one of the world’s most beautiful vineyards, the 146 hectares of Klein Constantia originally formed part of "Constantia", a vast property established in 1685 by Simon van der Stel, the first governor of the Cape. This particular valley was chosen not only for its beauty, but also for the decomposed granite soils on its slopes, gently cooled by ocean breezes. The property behind the iconic Vin de Constance has pedigree and provenance that stretches widely beyond sweet wine.
The property behind the iconic Vin de Constance has pedigree and provenance that stretches widely beyond sweet wine. Meticulous vineyard practice extends to world class dry whites and reds, and the Estate Red blend has a rich lineage dating back to 1988 under the 'Marlbrook' name, assembled from the red varieties grown in this cool climate.

Critics Ratings

'Fresh black cherries and black currants on the nose. Balanced and fruit forward on the palate. Medium to full body. Firm tannins. Outstanding freshness with minty character. To enjoy now.' - James Suckling, 92/100

'Gorgeous violet nose gives way to sweetly defined damson and cherry fruit on the palate. Bright, polished and poised with supple tannin structure, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Malbec has exemplary elegance and a complex, mineral-driven finish.' - Decanter Magazine, 92/100
